  • It is a beautiful place of Gijón. Is sees all the coast and also has a view beautiful of the city. It is in the neighbourhood of Cimadevilla, old town of Gijón and few steps from the beach of San Lorenzo in the area of development and Marina. Precious to go take a walk on foot or by bicycle

  • perfect place to contemplate the sculpture of the praise of the horozonte and all the bhia in gijon, as the place is on a cliff caution if you go with children
