Geocache Description:

Faro de Avilés o Faro de San Juan de Nieva.
Faro situado a la entrada de la Ría de Avilés en Asturias. Aparcar cerca del faro!
Aviles Lighthouse.
Park near the lighthouse!

En las proximidades del emplazamiento actual del Faro se encontraba una batería de artillería para defensa de la ría de los ataques de corsarios ingleses. En una incursión de éstos, los cañones fueron arrojados al agua. Parte del material de la batería se utilizó en la construcción del faro en 1863.

A 8 millas marinas (cerca de 15 Km..) del faro -y según miras hacia alta mar, a mano izquierda- se encuentra el cañón submarino de Avilés, el más profundo del mundo, según F. P. Shepard y R. F. Dill, expertos en esta materia geológica. El cañón origina una fosa de cerca de 4.750 metros de profundidad, creando un paraíso marítimo, aún inexplorado por su enorme calado.

En este Faro grabó Woody Allen unas escenas de la película Vicky Cristina Barcelona!

In the vicinity of the current location of the lighthouse was a battery of artillery to defend the estuary of the attacks of British pirates. In one such raid, the guns were thrown overboard. Some material on the battery used in the construction of the lighthouse in 1863.

8 nautical miles (about 15 Km.) Lighthouse and the sea view as a left-hand is known Avilés submarine canyon, the deepest in the world, according to F. P. Shepard, R. F. Dill, the major experts in this field geology. The canyon creates a hole of about 4750 meters deep, creating a maritime paradise still unspoiled by his great draft.

In this place, on august 2007, Woody Allen was shotting scenes for his last film ( Vicky Cristina Barcelona ) with Scarlett Johanson, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Rebecca Hall.
