A-66 Asturias

Some photos of A-66 from Campomanes to Mieres. This autovía opened in 1993.

1. Pola de Lena.

A-66-435 by European Roads, on Flickr

2.

A-66-436 by European Roads, on Flickr

3.

A-66-437 by European Roads, on Flickr

4.

A-66-439 by European Roads, on Flickr

5. Asturias is quite green compared to farther south.

A-66-440 by European Roads, on Flickr

6. MI-3, another prefix used locally.

A-66-442 by European Roads, on Flickr

7.

A-66-443 by European Roads, on Flickr

8.

A-66-446 by European Roads, on Flickr

9. Mieres-Sur.

A-66-447 by European Roads, on Flickr

10. Okay...

A-66-448 by European Roads, on Flickr

11. AS-I is an autovía and is signed as the main route to Gijón instead of A-66 via Oviedo.

A-66-450 by European Roads, on Flickr

12. Before the AS-I interchange was built, there was an offramp to N-630 here. They moved the ramp, but the signage was left over the main carriageway.

Don't get me started on Asturian council prefixes. There are 78 of them, as many as councils (as they call municipalities there) the Principality has.

And there's Lena river. This one doesn't freeze in Winter, as Asturias doesn't get that cold.

Yeah....

National roads would be A-XX or N-XXX but regional roads can be

AS-XX for regional motorways and main roads

YY-X for local roads where YY is the municipality.

SB-3 = third road of Soto del Barco municipality (near the airport, 0,5x0,5 road or so)


AS-1 was prepared to arrive to Gijon avoiding Oviedo, being near to other cities and avoiding congestions.

I've just purchased a new electronic toll payment device valid for all motorways of Spain, Portugal and France. It also works in a few car parks of Spain, mostly located in Catalonia.

I've been using it for more than a year and it's helped me save hundreds of € in tolls thanks to the special discounts for electronic toll users on the AP-68 in La Rioja.

A-1051 around Roquetas de Mar in Andalusia will open to traffic on Friday, but only 2.5 km from Las Losas to the north side from Roquetas de Mar.

Still a much needed improvement and a sign that even the most stuck motorway project in Spain is finally moving.

Is it;

* Autovía de la Costa da Morte
* Autovía da Costa da Morte

I've seen both mentioned in the press. Is it a difference between Galician and Spanish? I thought 'da' didn't exist in Spanish, but maybe I'm wrong on that.

Yes, indeed.... Galician and Spanish.

In addition, A Coruña would be La Coruña in Spanish and Fisterra would be Finisterre (End of the Earth, 'cos it is the western point of Europe continental. It comes from Latin: Finis Terrae)

Costa Da Morte = Coast of Death. Really? Wow! Not a very inviting name (To say the least.)

That area is one of the ugliest in Spain... Plastic foil greenhouses in a dry, unmaintained environment. I drove through such an area in Almería province, nearly all houses had metal bars in front of the windows and doors. Are they high crime areas?

No.... but in southern Spain it is quite common to have those fenced windows. Sometimes they are quite good.

(it is not sure but guessed that this is village where Quixote started their adventures. Author never said name of village and seems the nearest to descriptions)


In addition, far away, in my region, this is the prettiest one
