  • We chose the guided tour and it was a success. The Guide explained everything very well, not only what you see, if not its origin, even with details that go unnoticed. Stunning views from Tower, large courtyard, colossal door entrance and surprising unfinished Church and has no cult, where the world's largest elliptical dome. Recommended

  • The complex architectural, mid-20th century, was the largest labor University of Spain. It is worth visiting it for the great thing of its architecture and its history. Theatre, the old church, climb to the vantage point of the Tower (130m), from where there are stunning views of Gijón, the coast and the nearby mountains... and in summer take a cane on the terrace which installs the Laboral's coffee in the area close to the gardens. There are guided tours of an hour and only is also accessible to the Tower (no need to do the entire route). Tickets are available at the tienda-recepcion. You should check schedules before you go because there are no many frequencies.

  • Of visit essential. It is the largest building in Spain, something that few people know. You can make guided tour where tell you the story of the building and you see the theater and the basilica with its spectacular oval dome or walk freely around the large central courtyard or gardens. From the tower you can see the grandeur of the building and the views from the city on clear days are precious.
