You will get to Avilés after crossing the Monte Areo mount and also after crossing some villages. You will enjoy Avilés’ old city due to its beauty. In this city you will find some of the biggest beaches in Asturias such as Sablón, Bayas and Salinas.
We will now be leaving Gijón. We have to go to the promenade of the town and continue until Rodriguez San Pedro’s Avenue to reach Padre Máximo square. Following the indications and walking through Mariano Pola, Galicia and República Argentina avenues, we will arrive at the AS-19 road, which will lead the Way for some time. We will walk along this road and cross the railway. Before arriving to a roundabout, we will take a way to our right that will lead us to a smaller road. We follow this road until arriving to Veriña (after crossing the AS-19 viaduct) and we go on on this road towards Poago. After more railways, we will climb Areo Mount towards Poago village.
We will pass Pavierna on our way. We will find a diversion towards San Pablo’s dolmen, which we will take to descend to Carreño’s valley until the CE-6 road. We will cross this road for about 500 meters and then we will take a diversion to AS-326 road. We go on until reaching a big roundabout, where we will leave this path. Leaving the roundabout to our right we go on until finding again the AS-19. We move on passing by Tabaza village and finding a football pitch. We now have to cross some railways and continue beside Avilés river. Here we will find a park and then will go on towards AS-238 road. We go on on Marqués de Suances Avenue until Cervantes Avenue. We will find now Avilés city, after walking for about 20 kilometers. This city has the largest dune area in all Asturias, surrounded by amazing cliffs and idyllic beaches. If we still have strengths, we can go on to Muros de Nalón to advance some kilometers in tomorrow’s stage. If you want to do this, check the information we have for Stage 20.
