The Parador de Gijón occupies an old mill in Isabel la Católica Park, one of the most beautiful areas of this city facing the sea, which offers beaches, culture, excellent cuisine and gorgeous green spaces. The well-kept vegetation surrounding the hotel and a lovely pond make this a peaceful, pleasant spot. The interior is comfortable and has a restaurant that is ideal for both family get-togethers and business meetings. From the hotel, you can head out on a walk along San Lorenzo Beach, which connects the city to the Bay of Biscay, or through the port quarter of Cimadevilla to Santa Catalina Hill, where you will find the Chillida sculpture Elogio del Horizonte (In Praise of the Horizon), and where the Cantabrian coast offers up a beautiful panoramic view.
Near the Parador, you can visit the interesting aquarium and the botanical garden, a wooded area out of a fantasy. Laboral City of Culture is a must-see. This grand building has been converted into a cultural space and offers amazing views of Gijón from its tower viewpoint. It is located three kilometers from the city and is a creative community in which more than 4,000 people study and do research, producing an intense cultural environment.
Gijón is a beautiful city with a mild climate, where the snow hardly dares show its face some winters. It holds a special charm that you will find to be a pleasure to discover.
