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.
The town was trying hard to keep up to its new reputation as a centre for the arts. The area around the tourist office was bright with colour.
They had chosen a quirky mascot that showed up everywhere.
A mural on an apartment building picked out the colours of the town in an artful way.
Other art was sprinkled around the town.
