Iglesia de San Pedro

  • Bus

The Iglesia de San Pedro is an iconic structure in Gijón, and with good reason.  This church, in the pre-Romanesque, Gothic and Neoclassical styles, located at the foot of Cimavilla and built alongside Playa de San Lorenzo, is where the city's most famous son was baptised: Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos. 

Whether you love medieval religious architecture or history or photography, or if you simply want to enjoy a pleasant seaside walk, the Iglesia de San Pedro is a must-see on your visit to the city.
