    A building that stands out for its size and architecture, good place for a turn and site worth knowing in this city.

    It is one of the must-see "" in Gijón, but the truth is that leaving the magnitude and magnificence of the building, its mammoth scale, and the impression on the visitor, it is not that the visit will be spectacular. An educational building built at the height of the Franco regime. The enormous coat of arms of the regime on the balcony of the theatre thus attests. The content of the visit is much more mundane. Few rooms are visited, and if we consider that the Church is empty and was unfinished, and that theatre has the aesthetics of the 1950s, "rationalist", it is not to throw rockets. The visit to the tower by its views may be the more grateful for the visit, but nobody would not die to see it. If you don't have another more important thing to do in Gijón, go to visit him, otherwise, if you have little time and want to see interesting things, go for other visits as the Aquarium, the Railway Museum, the Botanical Garden, the modernist Gijon, Cimadevilla

  • Imprescindible su visita / Your visit is 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!
  • Despite having been in oblivion for many years never stopped being an imposing architectural work. Of the highlights of the 20th century... and perhaps European Spanish. I highly recommend everyone visiting. It has no waste. Oh, and if possible, climb the tower to enjoy excellent views.
