About ITU Duathlon World Championships
Avilés is a mid-sized city in northwest Spain, 10 km away from the Asturias International Airport (OVD). Located in the heart of the Asturian coastline, it is a singular tourist destination in the Asturian Natural Paradise. Noteworthy in Avilés are its picturesque historic quarter, the coastal beaches, the natural areas surrounding the city and the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre with its outstanding and original architectonic design. The Historic quarter of Avilés, declared a Historic-Artistic Site, is regarded as the medieval town of Asturias. Strolling along its quiet and peaceful streets garnished with porticoes, squares, churches and palaces, one can walk through its history, from the 12th c. to the present time, among spaces and buildings representing Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Modernist architectonic styles. The Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre, the only work in Spain of the famed Brazilian arquitect, stands out as an exclusive space between the Avilés estuary (La Ría) and its historic quarter. The four buildings that make up the cultural complex meet at a large square, enveloping visitors in a singular atmosphere with the author’s identity signs: human scale of the buildings, the different shapes that the curved line can trace the visual amplitude of the space and the white colour as the horizon roof.
