  • It is essential to go and learn the history of this complex, entrance is free and you also serve in a very friendly way to provide you with information. That Yes, there kinds so there are certain things that cannot be seen or visit because they are used.

  • If you are in Gijon don't visit it. In little more than one hour and for only five euro explain amount of interesting things from an impressive and very well recovered from oblivion construction. The best is the ascent to the tower and the views from the top.

  • 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.
