  • Port of Gijón

The city is synonymous with the sea, green spaces, and leisurely strolling. It's maritime, urban and modern and also has a delicious cuisine.Read more...

What to see We suggest starting your visit at the beach of San Lorenzo and its seafront promenade which stretches from the Isabel la Católica Park to the church of San Pedro, with the Cantabrian Sea in the background. You'll end up in the fishing quarter of Cimadevilla, which forms a small peninsula going up to the sculpture by Chillida called 'Elogio del Horizonte' ('In Praise of the Horizon'), offering spectacular views over the coast. Cimadevilla has stately mansions, old fishermen's dwellings and Roman ruins such as the defensive wall and the Archaeological Site-Museum of the Roman baths. The Town Hall stands in the Plaza Mayor square, and the Gijón Museum in the Plaza de Jovellanos square. In the Plaza del Marqués square overlooking the marina you'll find the Revillagigedo Palace and the collegiate church of San Juan Bautista. The modern city has an abundance of squares and green areas. It's worth browsing the shops along the Calle Corrida, the old cafés and cider bars in the Paseo Begoña or going as far as the Teatro Jovellanos theatre. In the surrounding area the Laboral City of Culture is also well worth a visit. Gastronomy 'Fabada' (a white bean stew), seafood stew, 'pote asturiano' (a hearty soup) and hake with fish cheeks are among the best choices – and they all taste even better if accompanied by the local cider.
