Tour description

Xixón is one of the most beautiful maritime cities in Spain, but at nightfall the whisper of crimes that occurred in its streets, secrets and magical beings is heard. Discover with us the most amazing stories of the city on this free tour of the myths and legends of Gijón.

Intrepid traveler, we summon you at the door of the Church of San Pedro together with other story seekers like you, to start our night route. Soon we will leave the protection of this Christian temple to begin the task that has been entrusted to us: reveal some of the most lurid myths that occurred in the town of Jovellanos, find beings that inhabit the Gijón nightlife and other monsters that are not so mythological, but that They will also make our hair stand on end.

They say that the cuélebre has the scale of a fish, that it lives inside the river that nobody sees. The last time they saw him, he was in town, dressed as a piper..."


This is how Víctor Manuel sang in his song, will it be as he tells us? We will get to know an Asturian mythological being and the history that links it to the beach of San Lorenzo.

We will walk through the streets of Gijón like disturbing souls while we bring to light the Asturian black chronicle . We will talk about some of the most macabre crimes in the place, such as the Cruces infanticide, the case of the girl in mourning and others.

We will not take off our mourning, because there are still many crimes tonight. Our steps will take us to the epicenter of the macabre ... Traveler, you will be thinking: what place is this? You will be surprised to learn how the Plaza del Ayuntamiento was a place of executions in the not so distant past or how the Clock Tower was the old jail of the city...

We will travel to the end of the 15th century, a time of superstitions , of legends that seeped into everyday life and where the striae gained prominence. Who are these characters? Myth or reality ? Approach carefully, traveler, and we will tell you more…

In a maritime town like this one, disturbing stories related to the sea and the beings that inhabit its depths cannot be missing. Next to the breakwater, we will attend one of the best-known trials among sailors.

After reading this , are you ready to enter the unknown side of Xixón with us?
