Free Tour Gijón Essentials

Brief description of the tour

Do you want to get to know the “Gijón of the soul” as Vicente Díaz sings? This seaside town with 5,000 years of history invites you to relax on its seafront promenade, lose yourself in its narrow streets and get inebriated with its cider. Will you join us?

What are we going to see?


We will start the tour by meeting at a mythical beach of San Lorenzo. The smell of salt and the sea breeze will welcome us to a tour of this port city full of anecdotes, stories, culture and art.

On our first steps we will have the opportunity to greet Caesar, who will tell us what the inhabitants of Gijón were like during its Roman past. The thermal baths of that period will be an obligatory stop during our tour along the beach.


Next, at the top of the promenade, we will come across 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 Main Square until we enter the Cimadevilla neighbourhood, the old quarter of Gijón. Here we will find such characteristic buildings as the Palacio de los Valdés, the Palacio de Revillagigedo and the Torre del Reloj (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 there are still other characters to discover! A few metres away we will come across the house of Jovellanos himself, who will whisper his enlightened ideas to us before continuing our tour.


A bit of gastronomy and popular culture could not be missing from the tour. We will walk through the renowned Plaza del Lavaderu and the Campo de las Monjas -Les Monxes- to finish our stroll through the seaside town.

Let yourself be overwhelmed by the immensity of the Cantabrian Sea at the hand of Chillida! And of course, we will tell you about the most modern, cultural and indie Gijón, discovering aspects of Gijón’s music, cinema and literature.
