Gijón is not a quaint fishing village. It is the largest city in Asturias.

Gijon produces iron, steel and chemicals, and is the main loading ter­minal for Asturian coal. Gijón has emerged from its industrial roots, and gave tself a thorough face-lift filled with pedestrianised streets, parks, seafront walks, cultural attractions and lively eating, drinking and shopping scenes.
