History of Palacio de Meres

The first known settlement in Meres, corresponds to the circular Tower of Defense (13th-14th century) destroyed by order of the Catholic monarchs.

 

The first construction of Palacio de Meres dates from the first half of the 15th century, but it is not until the end of the 16th century when it is redone and expanded. Pedro Argüelles, ‘El Negro’, was the first Lord of the House of Meres and his jurisdiction, alderman of Oviedo, Siero and the sea ports of the Principality of Asturias. In connection with this position, he receives a letter from the emperor Charles I of Spain and V of Germany to alert of possible invaders by the coast.

 

The one who ordered to extend the chapel of Santa Ana was, in the 17th century, D. Antonio Argüelles Quiñones y Valdés, marquis of the Paranza and viscount of the Arenas.

 

At present, the palace belongs to the sons and grandchildren of Mrs. Laína Uría Ríu and Mr. Joaquín Cores Masaveu, direct descendants of all previous ones.

 

Family business formed by the fifteenth and sixteenth generation, whose objective is the maintenance and enrichment of the heritage of our ancestors.
