Founded nearly 3,000 years ago as a fishing village, Gijón is nowadays an important port on the Atlantic coast of Spain. The historic fishing village, known as Cimadevilla, is located on a peninsula that divides the port in half. The village is the main tourist attraction of the city. Take a hike up to Cerro de Santa Catalina and admire the magnificent view of the outstretched coastline forming the port. On the very edge of the peninsula is a sculpture the size of a house, Eligio del Horizonte, or Praise of the Horizon.
