The coastal city of Gijón lies in the north of Spain, in the region of Asturias. It has a large port, as well as several good beaches and a lively town centre. Although it’s the biggest city in Asturias, it’s not huge, so it doesn’t have loads of museums, but it does have a handful of good art museums, history museums and archeological sites. Here’s our pick of the top 10 museums in Gijón.
