  • 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.
