Loads of restaurants and bars in each square. It's a very nice quiet place with some shade to escape the beach heat. Highly recommend if you are in Gijon already.

Gorgeous part of town. One side the harbour, on the other side the San Lorenzo beach. Lovely sidrerías and plenty of food on offer. But not too big and easily covered.

A pleasant area to walk around including the gardens taking you to the top and the older medieval area of the city. It takes you from the playa de Lorenzo around to the Puerto Deportivo.
