Blue and Green

Environmental protection and sustainability form the backbone of the urban transformation process in which the city is currently immersed.

The recovery of Avilés Estuary, which connects the city and its industrial area with the immensity of the Cantabrian Sea, marks a milestone in its recent history. The city has managed to preserve its concept of a thousand-year-old city through the conservation of its medieval historic quarter, while embarking on the journey to modernity.  

Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre, integrated into the new structure of the estuary, represents a meeting point between the city and its green areas, its industrial area and the sea, establishing the city as one of the great cultural references of northern Spain.

Innovative Territory

Avilés Isla de la Innovación gathers internationally leading research centres, generators of knowledge, innovation and productive improvements for the surrounding industrial network.

Arcelor Mittal's Global R&D Asturias and New Frontier centres, the Steel Technology Centre (IDONIAL) and La Manzana del Acero, as a key and unique R&D&I infrastructure, establish a technological core, seen as a benchmark in the development of new materials, processes and solutions for steel-based manufacturing and processing companies.
