An Architectural and Cultural Treasure of Gijón

The Revillagigedo Palace, also known as the Valdés Palace, is one of the most outstanding monuments in Gijón. Located in the historic Plaza del Marqués, in the Cimavilla neighbourhood, this impressive 18th-century building is an emblem of Asturian Baroque architecture and a cultural landmark of the city.

The palace, built on a medieval tower, stands out for its symmetrical façade, flanked by two robust square towers. Its fortified appearance, combined with its baroque elegance, gives it a unique personality. Particularly noteworthy is the chapel of the Trinity, linked to the palace by a cantilevered arch and crowned by a spectacular octagonal dome.

Today, the Revillagigedo Palace is much more than a beautiful historical building. It is a vibrant center of culture and art, home to the International Center for Contemporary Art. Here, visitors can enjoy a wide range of temporary exhibitions by national and international artists, workshops and lectures. The palace has become a meeting place for lovers of art and culture, and its tower offers unrivaled panoramic views of the city and the port.

In addition, the Revillagigedo Palace and its surrounding plaza are the setting for many local events and celebrations, such as concerts, festivals, and markets. During these festivities, the palace is illuminated and becomes a spectacle of light and color that further enhances its beauty.
