  • It is one of the arquitectonicos-historicos most impressive that there are in Spain and still lacks much to give him. For years almost in abandonment re taking advantage of many of its areas is gone but remains much to draw from such architectural mole. Visit essential.

  • Extraordinary architecture and grand plaza !
  • the buildings and facilities are great; we visited an art exposition; still have to go and see concerts there!
  • Seriously recommended to visit this building if it is passed by Gijón. To my reminds me of Hogwarts... is quite mysterious. I love it.

  • 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.
