How to come

Gijón's location midway along the coast of Asturias determines its situation as a meeting point of two major road links: the so-called Ruta de la Plata and the Cantabrian Highway.

Running South-North from the interior of the Iberian Peninsula, the layout of the former is defined by the N-630 Ruta de la Plata National Highway (Gijón-Sevilla) and parallel to this, the A-66 and AP-66 motorways (Benavente-Gijón and León-Campomanes, respectively), which facilitate ease of movement from the south of the peninsula: Madrid, towns and communities along the Ruta de la Plata and other road links.

The A-66 motorway is currently being developed along the entire 800 km route between Gijón and Seville, of which, nowaday, more than one third is in service, and the rest is under construction.

The second major road link, which runs East-West along the entire Cantabrian Coastline, is defined by the N-634 National Highway (Irún-Santiago de Compostela), which in Asturias forks along the coast via the N-632 (Ribadesella-Canero), known as the Carretera de la Costa (Coastal Highway), thus enabling one to either head inland or drive right alongside the sea. This corridor, running parallel to the Cantabrian Sea, is now practically doubled up in the East from the French border to Gijón by the Cantabrian Motorway and Dual Carriageway (AP-8 and A-8), which is presently in diverse stages of construction towards the West from the centre of the Principality of Asturias to Galicia.

Gijón, Oviedo and Avilés are just a few minutes away from one another, linked by the motorway popularly known as the "Y", which connects up the A-8 with the A-66. The new dual carriageways, the A-64 (Villaviciosa-Oviedo) and the A-63 (Oviedo-Grado-Salas), as well as the AS-1 Mining Valleys Dual Carriageway (Gijón-Mieres) offer a new layout of major roads within the region that, alongside the fully renovated network of regional roads, connect Gijón with great ease to the rest of the Boroughs and Shires of the Autonomous Community of the Principality of Asturias.
