Monuments

The neighbourhood of Cimadevilla concentrates a good number of local monuments such as Revillagigedo Palace, the Collegiate Church of San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist) and the chapels of La Soledad (Solitude) and Los Remedios (The Remedies). Next to this last building is to be found the Birthplace of Jovellanos, a typically Asturian mansion dating from the 15th century, currently the Museum of Gijón.

At the top of Cimadevilla, facing the Cantabrian Sea, we can see the monumental sculpture "Eulogy of the Horizon", raised there by the artist Eduardo Chillida in 1990. In the urban expansion of Gijón, we find such notable buildings as that of the Instituto Jovellanos, nowadays home to multiple cultural activities, as well as numerous examples of Modernist architecture dating from the beginning of the 20th century and of Rationalist architecture that left outstanding works in Gijón.

Outside the town, the visitor must make a visit to small Romanesque churches like those of San Andrés de Ceares and San Juan de Fano, mansions like that of San Andrés de Cornellana (converted into a Youth Hostel) or the astonishing Modernist-style Bauer Palacio, in Somió.
