This city is characterised by its status as a Villa. Its growth since its foundation in Roman times is due to the importance of its port and its industrial growth.
Gijón es una ciudad española con la categoría histórica de villa del Principado de Astúrias, comunidad autónoma de la que es el municipio más poblado. Se localiza en una bahía a 28 km de Asturias y a 26 km de Avilés. Si estás pensando en visitar el norte de España, Gijón es una increíble opción por sus atracciones turísticas y sobretodo, para los amantes de la sida. Además, encontrarás en la ruta costera de Gijón, parte del Camino de Santiago. A continuación te recomendamos unos cuantos sitios para visitar:
San Lorenzo Beach. San Lorenzo beach is one of the best urban beaches in Spain, an icon of the city of Gijón. You can enjoy this beach of more than a kilometre and a half of crescent-shaped golden sand and the waves of the Cantabrian Sea all year round, although it is in summer when it attracts the most tourists.
Neighbourhood of Cimavilla. The neighbourhood of Cimavilla, better known as the Barrio Alto, is the heart of the city of Gijón. The walk from the beach of San Lorenzo, mentioned above, will take you into the famous seaside neighbourhood and you can visit the Church of San Pedro, an essential site in Gijón if you visit the city: a gothic style temple built in the 15th century that became the parish church of the city until the end of the 19th century. Near San Pedro, you will find the Roman baths under the Campu Valdés and several remains of the Roman wall that limited the neighbourhood with its lower part. Going further into the city centre, you will find yourself in the Plazoleta de Jovellanos, where you can enjoy the architecture of the neighbourhood and the Jovellanos Birthplace Museum.
Revillagigedo Palace. The Revillagigedo Palace is located in the Cimavilla neighbourhood, near the Marina. This baroque palace was built in the 18th century but it was not until 1974 that it was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest.
Plaza Mayor. It is a large square surrounded by porticoed buildings built in the middle of the 19th century that will captivate your attention, especially the Gijón Town Hall.
Santa Catalina Hill. The Cerro de Santa Catalina is an iconic place in Gijón which is located on the Santa Catalina Peninsula and where you will find some old military buildings surrounded by nature. Once there you will find the Elogio del Horizonte, a huge concrete sculpture by Eduardo Chillida, which emits a soothing sound when it comes into contact with the wind.
Getting around on foot is recommended if you want to visit Gijón as the streets, promenades and avenues are designed for pedestrians, ensuring interrupted, safe and accessible pedestrian routes.

If you choose to travel by private car, the A-66 and AP-66 motorways are the most convenient routes for travelling from the south of the peninsula or the National Road N-630. To travel from the east or west, the Cantabrian area is connected by the N-634 national road.
Gijón is a very touristy place, especially at weekends and holidays and during Easter and summer, which is why parking is more difficult at these times of the year. The busiest areas are usually the San Lorenzo and Poniente beaches, the Cimavilla neighbourhood and the Marina.
