Gijón es una ciudad que enamora. Tiene todo tipo de actividades, culturales sobre todo, que a mi me encanta. También sus bonitos paseos junto al mar y disfrutar de su gastronomía en las sidrerías, tan típicas.

Gijon

The municipality of Gijon covers a surface of 182 square kilometres and is located in the central area of the long stretch of Asturian coastline. Its craggy and irregular coast contrasts with the gentle landscape of the interior landscape. Maximum height above sea level is 672 metres.

Gijon occupies a privileged geographic position on the Asturian map, a few minutes from Oviedo and Aviles. The cities are linked by the "Y" motorway, the large artery that works its way through the Asturian region. It takes half an hour to get to the airport and to the coal mining municipalities.

The centre of Gijon has the shape of an amphitheatre, marked by the immense beach of San Lorenzo, the main beach in the town area. Next to it, we find the beaches of Poniente and El Arbeyal, El Rinconin, Peñarrubia, Serín, La Cagonera and La Ñora, on the border with Villaviciosa.

Beaches
Gijon is a city by the sea, which is omnipresent in its geography and activities. Nature has given the city the gift of numerous stunning beaches all along its coastline.

In the summer the beaches are the destination for families, friends and lovers who come to sunbath, partake in water sports or simply enjoy the natural coastline. The beaches aren’t abandoned during the autumn and winter months, when they are perfect spots for a stroll, fishing and just taking in some lovely fresh air.

Parks & gardens
Gijon takes great care in conserving its recreational and green spaces, and has invested time and money in creating ample spaces that add to the quality of life of the city: in fact over one and a half million square metres of the city are dedicated to parks and gardens.

The city’s central plazas, such as those of San Miguel, San Agustín, Europa, Begoña, and the peaceful gardens, such as the Isabel La Católica Park, the "English" Park, the Pericones, the Rinconín or the new Cape San Lorenzo Park, open up a wide range of possibilities of enjoyment for young and old, residents and visitors.

One of the cities green treasures is the Botanical Garden of Gijon, located in the countryside setting of Cabueñes.

Active tourism
If you are into active tourism, adventure or outdoor activities, Gijon offers a host of possibilities.

For sea lovers, the Estación Náutica Gijón Costa Verde offers the possibility of practising sailing, scuba diving, boat trips, sightings of sea birds, dolphins and other aquatic life.
If you are more of a land lover, then the many hiking and rambling routes will keep you occupied; or quad biking, horse riding, paragliding, hot-air ballooning, are all excellent options available in the region.

Making Gijon your base, you can enjoy all the activities that Asturias has to offer, venturing further into the region, you can enjoy such diverse activities as potholing, bungee jumping, rafting, hydro speed, skiing, mountain biking and much more.

Cultural attractions
The neighbourhood of Cimadevilla offers a wealth of cultural attractions and monuments such as the Revillagigedo Palace, the Collegiate Church of San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist) and the chapels of La Soledad (Solitude) and Los Remedios (The Remedies).

Next to this last building you encounter the birthplace of Jovellanos, statesmen, author and philosopher. The building is a typically Asturian mansion dating from the 15th century, and is currently the Museum of Gijon.

At the top of Cimadevilla, facing the Cantabrian Sea, we can see the monumental sculpture "Eulogy of the Horizon", created by the artist Eduardo Chillida in 1990.

In the urban locality of Gijon, we find such notable buildings as that of the Instituto Jovellanos, nowadays home to multiple cultural activities, as well as numerous examples of Modernist architecture dating from the beginning of the 20th century and of Rationalist architecture that left outstanding works in Gijon.

Outside the town visitors should take time out to visit the small Romanesque churches like those of San Andrés de Ceares and San Juan de Fano, and mansions such as San Andrés de Cornellana (converted into a Youth Hostel) or the astonishing Modernist-style Bauer Palacio, in Somió.

Cuisine
Asturian gastronomy is created around wholesome and hearty home cooking. When in Asturias you have to try the rich bean stew dish of Fabada Asturiana, which consists of fabes (white beans) with chorizo sausage, morcilla (black pudding), lacón (shoulder of pork), tocino or pancetta (pork fat) and saffron. It’s a rather heavy meal, so best served at lunchtime, so you can enjoy a siesta afterwards, or to try a smaller portion as a starter. Fabada should be washed down with typical Asturian strong cider or a good red wine.

Antother gastronomical favourite from Asturias is Queso de Cabrales (Cabrales cheese); coming from the town of Cabrales in Asturias and made in the traditional way, it’s a blue cheese, deliciously piquant in both smell and taste. All of the milk that goes into the production of Cabrales comes exclusively from herds reared in a small zone in the Picos de Europa Mountains.

Eating out
Cider houses and seafood restaurants are the order of the day when visiting Gijon, although there are a number of excellent restaurants serving international cuisine; however, when in Spain as the old adage goes…

Climate
The weather in Asturias is as contrasting as is the scenery; it can be extremely wet and temperate for much of the year and in the winter, especially in the mountainous areas, it can get quite cold. However, this only makes for more dramatic scenery, with the snowy mountains and storm-wrecked beaches. Many areas within the region have their own microclimate, due to the close proximity of the sea to the Cantabrian Mountains.

Comentario de Costa Verde

La costa del Cantábrico es espectacular, con impresionantes acantilados y el mar tan impetuoso. Gijón tiene muchos paseos bordeando la costa, que son ideales para andar en bicicleta o simplemente pasear. Lo único malo, es el tiempo, que no siempre acompaña, el sol se hace de rogar....

Comentario de Gijón

As we live on the Costa Blanca and this was our first trip to Asturias, we were very impressed with Gijon and were reluctant to return home!!! It is a lovely clean place with an attractive old town. We hope to return in the future.


Comentario de Costa Verde

Very attractive.

Comentario de Gijón

Gijon is an amazing mix of style and fashion with down-to-earth city living by the sea. It's a busy place, but at the same time, very relaxed and easy going. With everything from modern city centre shopping to the narrow old streets around the old town and port, there really is something for all tastes and all weathers. The weather in August was sunny and warm (~26 C) with light sea breezes. We saw rain showers on two of our 14 days there.


Comentario de Costa Verde

The Costa Verde is very popular with Spanish holiday makers; there seemed to be very few foreigners around. The rest of Europe is missing out! The coast is a mix of cliffs, coves and wide sandy beaches; something for everyone, be they car-cruisers, cyclists, walkers or deck-chair enthusiasts. To get the best out of your stay, you should be willing to practise a little basic Spanish.

Comentario de Gijón

Gijon ist eine (barrierefreie), freundliche und moderne Stadt.


Comentario de Costa Verde

Die Küste besteht aus mehreren Buchten (Playas), die über einen sehr schön angelegten Wanderweg miteinander verbunden sind; dieser Weg startet in Gijon und endet an der Playa Nora; die einzelnen Strände sind sehr schön und werden täglich gesäubert.

Comentario de Gijón

Bustling city yet had a friendly 'villagey' charm to it. Some guide books have been wrongly dismissive about Gijon. We found the old town attractive, loved the parks, beaches, cliff paths and city centre shopping which we preferred over Santander. Got the impression that Gijon is a 'happening' place to be.


Comentario de Costa Verde

Very scenic. Beautiful beaches/coves - yet the mountains are a short drive away.
