Sometimes we have to experience something extraordinary to see what we have near us.  The same happened to Avilés, a beautiful and unknown city of which the iron and steel industry had created a very unattractive image.

In the recent years, the city has suffered a major change, with good hotels and restaurants and a historic city centre full of treasures to discover. But it was not until March 2011, with the inauguration of the Niemeyer Centre, that Avilés has taken the final step to become part of the touristic circuit.

It is clear that Avilés is a city specifically designed to walk, with a large pedestrian area, and to be surprised by its streets. You can start at Plaza de España (El Parche), either to arrive to the Niemeyer Centre or to get to the historic city centre.

If you are a gastronomy lover, Avilés has a wide and delicious offer in different areas of the centre and in other cities of the region, where we can find several cider bars and restaurants. We will be offered the best meat and the best fish. Although the cider is the most typical drink, they also cater for  wines.

Avilés was known as the  Athens of the north. Culture has always been present in the city. The Palacio Valdés theatre offers  a brilliant program every year with national and international plays from the most famous companies.

For sport lovers, you will be able to practice any activity you want, from paddle or tennis to running or golf.

In this area you can also go tre kking or horse riding.

You shouldn’t miss the opportunity to go to the sea, as it is a very important part of Avilés and its region. The river has been recovered for the enjoyment of its population and visitors. The beaches are also very relevant: Bayas, Santa María del Mar, San Juan and Salinas, a huge and lively place to enjoy in summer and an emblematic place for surfing lovers.

As you can see, Avilés offers all kinds of alternatives for your leisure time. You are invited to discover it by yourself! In the following link you can see different virtual tours of Avilés:
