Aviles is a port city in the province of Asturias in northwest Spain. The port is located a short walk from old town.
The Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Center, the only work of art in Spain of this Brazilian architect, is set besides the port facilities, on terrains that used to be part of the port esplanades.
The old town of Aviles is a largely pedestrianised quarter gathered around the Plaza de Espana. With a typical combination of plazas connected by sedate boulevards and punctuated by narrow winding alleys, the old town has some real architectural gems including the Valdecarzana and Camposagrado palaces and the 13th-century church of Sabugo.
