Placed in an elevation that was dominating the sea, on an accession of the VIIth and VIIIth century and possibly very previous, the castle was constructed by the Asturian monarches in the centuries VIII-IX. It was the most important strength of the kingdom, up to the point of which his name appears in the back of the Cross of the Victory that Alfoso III ordered to make in this place in the year 908. As it has revealed itself in the excavations, Gauzón was not only a castle, was treating itself about a complex of approximately 1.700 m2 endowed with military, residential, productive and sacred contents, as a monumental door protected by a great tower, a residential aristocratic space and a space eclesial with the church of San Salvador.
