Because Gijón is the Asturian city that has best combined tradition and modernity. Popularly known as the capital of the Costa Verde, it is also the most populated city in the Principality, with more than 273,000 inhabitants.
Although there is evidence of an earlier presence in Monte Deva and Monte Areo, Gijón was founded in the 5th century BC. At this time, a group of Asturians settled permanently in the area of Campa Torres, building one of the most important forts on the Cantabrian coast. The Romans later walled the city, called it Gegionem and turned it into an important seaport.
In addition to the Roman Baths and the places already mentioned, the Jovellanos Birthplace Museum, the Aquarium, the Botanical Garden, the Jovellanos Theater, the Town Hall, the Revillagigedo Palace, the Laboral University and its religious centers are well worth a visit.
As a good Asturian city, the fabada is its star dish, although you should not leave Gijón without tasting the pote, the bollo preñado, El desarme, the carbayones and its fantastic cider.
Take your Furauto rental van and travel along the Asturian coast in search of some of the most beautiful towns in the country. Here you will find nature, history, beaches and dinosaur footprints.
The A-8 connects the 53 kilometers between Gijón and Cudillero in about 40 minutes. Once here, you will have to go to the fishing port, the main tourist attraction of the town. After taking the appropriate photographs and strolling through its beautiful streets, you can visit the Chapel of Humilladero, the Rectory House and the Quinta de Selgas.
In just over 30 minutes you can comfortably reach this beautiful town located about 40 kilometers from Gijón. Drive along the A-8 to enjoy this parish of the council of Colunga, from where you can see the Asturian coast in all its splendor. In addition to the Church of Santa María de Sábada and the Chapel of San Roque, you can take a walking route to see the sets of the television series Doctor Mateo.
Both towns are separated by 90 kilometers, a trip of approximately one hour. To reach this parish in the council of Valdés, popularly known as "the white village of the green coast", it is necessary to take the A-8 again, although this time heading west. In this town, which serves as a passage of the Camino de Santiago and where Severo Ochoa was born, you can enjoy the lighthouse, the Palace of the Marquis of Ferrera and its beautiful views of the coast.
We drive back to the east of the Principality until we reach Ribadesella, specifically we must take the A-8 for just over 45 minutes. This town is world famous for celebrating the International Descent of the Sella every August, although its Jurassic remains and its views from the cliffs are also incredible. Not to be missed is the Tito Bustillo Cave, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2008.
Half an hour away by the N-632 and the A-8 is Tazones, a village in the council of Villaviciosa. This parish, which is inhabited by 254 neighbors, is famous because it was precisely here where Charles V arrived to be crowned King, so this was the first Spanish land he set foot on back in 1517. Once here, do not miss the Parish Church, the House of Shells, the Dinosaur Footprints and the Lighthouse.
