About the Tour

On this visit we will get to know Gijón from another point of view, focusing on its bourgeois expansion and the Citadel of Capua.
The illustrious Jovellanos will welcome us to what will be an urban experience from beginning to end, where dream buildings, curious anecdotes and corners with living history will accompany us for approximately 2 hours.

The Paseo de Begoña will welcome us with its imposing theater , centenary cafes and a great variety of vegetation in the heart of the city. Boulevards, squares and the Citadel of Celestino Solar (a clear example of a working-class neighborhood and a vestige of industrial Gijón) will be part of our tour.

We will also enjoy San Lorenzo beach, the main beach of the town. We will recreate with modernist buildings admired by Gaudí himself; the majestic sculpture of La Iglesiona , watching us from the heights; old cinemas; shopping streets ...

All this, along with a lot of curiosities such as a homicide and a bank robbery , make up the perfect ingredients to keep getting to know this city.

This season, Gijón is in fashion!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In the Plaza del Seis de Agosto, next to the statue of Jovellanos.

Cristina fue una chica muy profesional y amable que nos guio por las zonas más interesantes de la parte menos antigua de la ciudad, que tiene mucho que contar (mayormente por la gracia de Jovellanos). La visita es larga, nosotros tuvimos que dejarla casi al final porque teníamos una reserva para comer, pero mereció la pena y ojalá hubiéramos podido acabarla. Mis dieces.
