The vibrant heart of the city

Gijón’s Plaza Mayor, located in the old fishing district known as Cimavilla, is a vibrant public space brimming with history, charm and life. It’s one of the most visited places in the city, and once you delve into its cobbled streets and experience its welcoming atmosphere, it’s easy to understand why.

The square, rectangular in shape and surrounded by beautiful period buildings with wrought iron balconies, is an emblematic place in Gijón. Its architecture stands out for its colorful three-story houses that provide a unique and distinctive character to the environment. On one side of the square, you will find the Town Hall, an impressive building from the early 19th century that adds a touch of elegance to the whole.

What really brings life to the Plaza Mayor in Gijón are the many bars, restaurants and cider houses that surround it. Here, visitors can enjoy perfectly poured Asturian cider or sample the region's tasty dishes, all while immersing themselves in the bustle of the plaza. In addition, the square is the scene of numerous local events and festivities, such as Antroxu (Carnival) and Semana Grande, which fill the area with color, music and joy.

The Plaza Mayor is also the perfect starting point to explore the charm of the Cimavilla neighborhood, with its narrow streets, its Roman walls and its spectacular views of the marina and the Cantabrian Sea. In the vicinity of the square, you will find places of interest such as the City Museum, the Clock Tower and the Chapel of the Trinity.
