Gijon is a very popular place for tourists, but they are mostly Spanish (99%). It's mean that services are better, prices are lower, didn't mentioned pickpockets. I and my husband choose Gijon because we wanted to feel "real Spain" and seems we did it.
I advice this city for travellers, not for tourists, for persons who like Spanish lifestyle and culture. Gijon is an excellent place for try "to be like a Spanish". :-)
"Infogijon" the municipal tourist information service of Gijon will help you with necessary information. Gijon has a network of information points. The central tourist information centre is in Fomento Central Pier, www.visitgijon.com
Gijon is the second biggest ciy in Asturias region, it has very nice transportation system, many variants of car rental companies. There are many shopping possibilities (El Corte Ingles is also get-at-able).
- Pros:The ocean and mountains in one place
- Cons:Changeble weather and many clowds
- In a nutshell:Unforgetable romantic city with much positive energy
It is the beach of St.Lorenzo - Playa de San Lorenzo. Seems that a half of Spain is here, there are so many people.... more travel advice
