Arrival instructions

Gijón’s location midway along the coast of Asturias determines its situation as a meeting point of two major road links: 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). 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).

Daily bus services connect Gijón with Madrid and other cities (Santander, Bilbao, etc…) in Spain.

RENFE has possible daily destinations with Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante and combinations with other Spanish towns and cities.
