    Gijón/Xixón is a city with over two thousand years of history and a tradition of archaeological excavations dating back to the early 20th century, although the remains were not researched professionally and systematically until the 1980s.All this material and subsequent studies, findings and research become an attraction every summer at three of our major archaeological sites: the Campa Torres Archaeological Park, the Roman Villa of Veranes and the Campo Valdés Roman Baths. Each of these sites is of great value in itself, but much more can be got from them with the launching of a series of activities summed up in an offering called Archaeological Summer 2016, allowing participants to obtain entertaining, in-depth knowledge of this heritage dating from the city’s most ancestral memory.

    If you prefer tarmac to greenery in all circumstances and parks, gardens and country paths produce a strange, gut-reaction of rejection in you because you are a militant urbanite and allergic to pollen, then Gijón/Xixón is definitely not your city… do not come here, flee this city!

    You need only climb up to Santa Catalina Headland, above the old fishing quarter, to realize the grandeur of the setting in which Gijón is nestled. From there, the whole city, the entire coastline of the borough with its cliffs and beaches, and the high mountains further inland can be made out all the way to the Picos de Europa. Green and blue rule here.
