Bustiello is one of the many mining villages in the province of Asturias, and is situated near Mieres, south of Oviedo, not far from Spain’s northern coast. It is a good example of industrial paternalism. The village was built between 1890 and1925 by the mining company Sociedad Huellera Española on the estate of the Maqués de Comillas. All the original elements of the village remain: the church, in a Romanesque style with faience dressings, the miners’ club, the school, now a youth hostel, and the hospital, together with chalet-like houses of various grades occupied by the miners and the managerial staff. The visitor can enter house the house of Don Isidros. There are displays about the geology of the Asturias coal mining region, the estates of the Maqués de Commillas, the growth of the mining industry and working conditions in the local collieries.
