Description:
Gijón, traces of the past, references to the present guides the visitor through the western area of the borough of Gijón, passing through the rural parishes of Poago, Fresno, Tacones and Serín.

The route lets the visitor discover our most remote origins by visiting the Archaeological Park at Campa de Torres, offering the possibility of visiting the sepulchral stones at Monte Areo.

From there, as if it were a historical journey, the route goes to medieval times with the very well preserved Romanesque ruins of the Church of San Miguel in Serín.

The strong contrast between a remote archaeological past and another recent industrial past with the almost permanent view of the Arcelor steelworks along the entire route, all within the framework of a rural world in which the typically Asturian raised farm produce stores known as hórreos and many other elements of rural ethnography give rise to a heterogeneous and contrastive view of the borough.
