Aviles, a Little Town Trying to Live Up to Its Big Art Reputation

October 8th, 2014.

Aviles, a small industrial town on our way to the Picos de Europa, was blessed with a super-modern art gallery, the Centro Niemeyer.

Niemeyer’s super-modern curvilinear design housed a broad empty plaza, and two galleries.
