Can you come with us?
We will start the tour staying at a mythical meeting point for the people of Gijon, La Escalerona. The smell of salt and the sea breeze will welcome us on a tour of this port city full of anecdotes, stories, culture and art .
In our first steps we will have the opportunity to greet Caesar, who will tell us what the inhabitants of Gijón were like during their Roman past. The hot springs of that time will be a mandatory stop during our tour along the beach.
Next, crowning the Paseo Marítimo , we will find the Church of San Pedro , a beautiful building that is a symbol of our city. Did you know that both the baths and the church are located in the so-called Campo Valdés?
Our steps will take us to the Plaza Mayor until we enter the neighborhood of Cimadevilla , the old town of Gijón. In it we will find buildings as characteristic as the Palacio de los Valdés, that of Revillagigedo and the Clock Tower .
In the Plaza del Marqués we will see the Monument to Don Pelayo , founder of the Kingdom of Asturias and considered the initiator of the Reconquest.
But we still have other characters to meet! A few meters away we will come across the house of Jovellano s himself, who will whisper his enlightened ideas to us before continuing our tour.
A bit of gastronomy and popular culture could not be missing on the tour. We will visit the renowned Plaza del Lavaderu and the Campo de las Monjas -Les Monxes- to end up strolling through the fishing village.
Let yourself be overwhelmed by the immensity of the Bay of Biscay at the hands of Chillida ! And of course, we will talk to you about the most modern, cultural and indie Gijón, discovering aspects of Gijón's music, cinema and literature.

Gijon awaits you!
Like good people from Gijon "we meet at the Escalerona" (staircase n°4 of San Lorenzo Beach) look for the ORANGE UMBRELLA!
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
