Elogio del Horizonte

490x373-elogio-viento-gijon

This sculpture by artist Eduardo Chillida, named Elogio del Horizonte, is atop the highest part of the Cerro de San Catalina. It’s worth the trip, both to enjoy the charms offered by the neighbourhood of Cimavilla during the climb, and the breathtaking views of the Cantabrian Sea that this place offers. 

If you visit Elogio del Horizonte, be sure to stand in the centre of this chunk of concrete. This structure is specially designed such that from this spot, you can hear the sound of the ocean and wind while taking in the best views of the city.
