  • The Avilés estuary is one of the most beautiful natural estuaries in Asturias. Environmentally recovered, it has a promenade where the marina and its activities, the Niemeyer Centre, etc. can be seen.
  • The Niemeyer Centre, the last and most important work of the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in Europe, is a facility that adds an innovative touch and a new "skyline" to the city.
  • Shopping in Avilés. It is an ideal place, especially in the old part of the city - Calle de la Cámara and the surrounding area - where the old food market is located, which has recently undergone a successful "restyling".
