  • A great walk with fantastic views. To hear the sea at that point has its grace. Recommended. When you go down you can go tapas.

  • Spectacular place to walk or just sit and contemplate the sea and the coast of Gijón with the beach of San Lorenzo. Place close to the Praise, monument of Chillida and emblem of Gijón. From it you can hear the sea as when you put a conch in your ear. Visit this place if you have a chance to do so.
