Gijón : Michelin's recommendations
A large, bustling and modern walled town with more than 250 000 inhabitants, Gijón was originally built on the narrow peninsula of Santa Catalina. Near the port, the Plaza del Marqués boasts a harmonious ensemble of buildings: the elegant façade of the late-17C Palacio de Revillagigedo stands on the Santa Catalina hill, occupied by fishermen’s houses in the district known as Cimadevilla.
