Description:
The traveller is invited to pay a visit to the parishes that safeguard in their architecture the memory of Gijón's past, to see old churches, mansions that belonged to the local nobility and centuries-old hórreos (typically Asturian raised farm produce stores).

Travelling between evergreen fields and leafy woods, it is easy to forget the present and imagine the rural Gijón that the erudite Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos visited on horseback some two hundred years ago.
