  7. XIX CENTURY IN FORWARD The 19th century will bring the War of the Spanish Independence, Cangas de Onís's regiment is created and the villa will be the capital of one of the military governments. In the middle of the 19th century Cangas de Onís has a great growth due to different improvements: Buferrera's mining exploitation by an English company that was using great quantity of workforce, so much place as of the councils of the whole Asturias. In the 20th century, they will create the National Park of Covadonga's Mountain and the title of city is granted to the capital of the council. This century also will bring the closing of Buferrera's mines, which so much workforce had brought in the last century.
