This year’s award was presented to the town for  “embodying the model of a mountain town that has known how to adapt to the new times”. The awards are presented to a town in the Principality of Asturias to a town, village, population center, space landscape that has stood out in a notable way in the defense and conservation of its natural, environmental environment, its historical, cultural, or artistic heritage, in initiatives of economic and social impulse or in the realization of communal works or other outstanding manifestations of solidarity.

The Royal family visited the town and met the locals. They were received with a very warm welcome by the public. The town is located on the border with León, at an altitude of 1,486 meters, which makes the living conditions of its inhabitants very harsh, especially in winter.
