Cimadevilla and Rúa streets form one of the main thoroughfares which crossed the walled city and led from its main access to the Jewish quarter. At Rúa street you will find the house of Oviedo-Portal which forms part, along with the adjoining house of Solís-Carvajal and the Velarde palace, of the Museum of Fine Arts of Oviedo (currently undergoing expansion and remodelling) whose rich heritage with over eight thousand pieces catalogued have made it one of the most important of its kind in Spain; the house was erected in 1660 in line with the project by the architect Melchor de Velasco to serve as the home of the alderman of the city don Fernando de Oviedo-Portal.
