The Elogio al Horizonte, a famous monument in Gijon, Spain
Walk to the northern edge of the city to find Cerro Santa Catalina park, where you'll find La Fontica fountain and a sculpture called Elogio al Horizonte, or "In Praise of the Horizon." Hear the waves crashing on the coast, and witness unparalleled views of a seemingly endless ocean.
Breathe in the undeniably maritime air with Gijon cruises. Stroll along the city-side Playa de San Lorenzo, and see the boats docked in the bright blue waters at Puerto Deportivo. Don't miss the impressive array of marine life at Acuario de Gijon.
Gijon serves the best seafood in the area. Experience dishes like chopa a la sidra (fish cooked in cider) and caldereta gijonesa (seafood stew), quintessential examples of Gijon's gastronomic pedigree. Stop by V. Crespo, Sidreria Casa Carmen or La Posada del Mar, and get lost in Gijon's ocean flavors.
Gijon is proud to promote items that are made in Asturias and encourages store owners to do the same. Support locals and try on Asturian frocks and madrenas, the wooden sandals traditional to the region, at La Troupe or La Merced. Find local books at Central or Paradiso bookstores, and sip some Asturian wine at El Gallego during your Iberian Peninsula cruise.
