Car and Van rental in Aviles

The town of Aviles is on the coast of Asturias, in the northwest of Spain. This port and post-industrial city has a population of 85,000. The area around modern Aviles has been settled by humans since Palaeolithic times, but it wasn't until the early Middle Ages when the port became an important trading post, primarily for salt, that the town began to develop its own identity. Industrialisation came to Aviles in the early 19th century, and migration from the surrounding countryside and other areas of Spain continued well into the 20th. Steel production was one of the mainstays of the local economy, and while there are still some manufacturing industries in Aviles, the more recent focus has been towards tourism, and trading on its ancient heritage. The city has an oceanic climate, with fairly warm summers and mild winters, during which rainy, windy conditions are not unusual. For details of the Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch in the town, see Aviles.
