Tour description

Xixón, is one of the most beautiful maritime cities in Spain, but at nightfall you can hear the whisper of crimes that occurred in its streets, secrets and magical beings. Discover with us the most surprising 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 along with other story seekers like you, to start our night route. Soon we will abandon 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 Gijón at night and other monsters that are not so mythological, but that They will also give us goosebumps.

They say that the cuélebre has the scale of a fish, that it lives inside the river that no one sees. The last time they saw him, he was in town, dressed as a bagpiper...”


This is how Víctor Manuel sang in his song, will it be as he tells us? We will get to know the Asturian mythological being and the history that links him 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 of the place, such as the Cruces infanticide, the case of the girl in mourning and others.

We will not take off our mourning, for there are still many crimes tonight. Our steps will take us to the epicenter of the macabre … Traveler, you may 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 city jail...

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 took center stage. Who are these characters? Myth or reality ? Approach carefully, traveler, and we will tell you more…

In a maritime village 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?
