  • The Cerro de Santa Catalina is located in the District of Cimavilla and is accessible to both surrounding it as crossing streets. The views are amazing although they have an adaptation works half-finished and everyone accessed through the Middle falls fences; but you could not reach the Hill to admire the views.

  • If you visit Gijón you can not miss it though being on a hill, you need to walk a little. Too bad that when we were the Park was in the works.
