Bubbling Over with Beaches and Culture

Between lush hills and undulating coastline, Gijón is the largest city in Asturias. Its oldest part covers a peninsula with the modern Elogio del Horizonte sculpture at its green tip. Cobbled streets house brightly painted restaurants and bars serving the acclaimed local cider, and arches leading to stylish Plaza Mayor. Underground are the Campo Valdés Roman bath ruins, and Campa de Torres has an archaeology park.

Flanking the peninsula is Poniente beach, curving between the marina and aquarium, and overlooked by the Talasoponiente spa. Small Playa del Arbeyal is by the port, and the promenade of popular San Lorenzo beach continues to the waterfront San Pedro church.

Gijón activities include diving and dolphin watching, and there are 2 golf courses surrounded by nature. The Atlantic Botanical Gardens were the first in northern Spain, and sit across from the impressive buildings of Laboral University’s Viesques campus. Landscaped Isabel La Católica Park is close to the El Bibio bullring and across the river are the Gijón Exhibition Center and Asturias Museum.

Another museum was home to the city’s most famous son, Melchor de Jovellanos. One of his namesakes is an elegant theater overlooking Paseo de Begoña park.
