To the Middle Ages

As almost everywhere in Asturias, testify dolmens, the early settlement of the region. In the places Seroiro, Pradías, Andeo and Villares de Arriba these buildings can still be seen today. In the places Cecos, Villameirín, Fondodevilla, Sena and Laguía remains were found by hill forts, which were probably built to protect the mined gold. The mines were later adopted by the Romans, however, which left no major buildings.


The first written mention dates from the early 10th century from the Testament of Fruela II who named the monasteries Sante Marie de Zeques and Sancti Antonini de Ibias. During the Spanish War of Independence the town was a constant source of unrest with several smaller skirmishes. During the Carlistenaufstände the administrative headquarters between Granda de Salime, Tineo and Degaña moved back and forth until finally Ibias became independent.
