ABOUT GIJON

Gijón’s profile is determined by the sea. The city lies at the heart of the Asturian coastline. Located between Capes Torres and San Lorenzo, Gijón has always lived under the protection of the Cantabrian sea, which has determined its industrial, commercial and urban development as well as its weather or even its personality. the presence of the sea, its smell and buzz penetrate through the city’s streets and reach even the innermost areas of the town. Nine beaches, some in the downtown and others hidden between cliffs, a marina that has repeteadly been awarded the blue flag for the quality of its facilities and an industrial growing port comprise Gijón’s sea front, eighteen kilometers of coast that walkers can cover almost entirely without interruption.
