Asturias, officially the Principality of Asturias, is an autonomous community of Spain. It is coextensive with the province of Asturias, and contains nearly all of the territory that was part of the Kingdom of Asturias in the Middle Ages. The autonomous community of Asturias is bordered by Cantabria to the east, by Castile and León to the south, by Galicia to the west, and by the Bay of Biscay to the north. The most important cities are the communal capital, Oviedo, the seaport and largest city Gijón, and the industrial town of Avilés. Other popular municipalities include Cangas de Onís, Cangas del Narcea, Gozón, Grado, Langreo, Laviana, Lena, Llanes, Mieres, Siero, Valdés, Vegadeo and Villaviciosa. Asturias is also home to the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre and the Prince of Asturias Awards. (via Freebase)
