We are a family of 4 with 2 children aged 6 and 12. We visited the Roman baths and found it fascinating. Very reasonable priced. 2.50 per adult and children free. Well worth a visit.

Well preserved and presented old excavation of Roman baths, watch the video before exploring the museum so you have a good idea of the historical background. Lots of low ceilings so watch out for your head!

We dropped in here during a long weekend visit to Gijon. Entrance is free on Sundays, although the entrance fee isn't that expensive should you visit at another time. Information is all in Spanish, although anyone with an understanding of Roman history and life should be fine. There is a short film to introduce the site (again in Spanish), but... More

Worth visiting if you are in Gijon. You can get round within an hour and the remains of the Roman Baths are interesting to see. Unfortunately all the display details are only in Spanish but hey so what!?!

If you dont speak (or read) Spanish, this will be a short visit, but it's conveniently located and nicely done display.

These Roman remains are worth a visit and on a Sunday entrance is free. There is a short video introduction and a selection of exhibits that were unearthed during the excavation. You can then follow a short walkway route amongst the ruins of what was once a Roman bathhouse. Note that the ceiling is very low in places so anyone... More

Not seriously excavated before the turn of the century these Roman public baths would have been fantastic if they had been excavated and preserved earlier. As it is they have been sensitively and well restored and presented entirely underground in the old part of Gijon by the seaside. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was a guide in...

These baths are well presented and it is worth to see them - entrance fee is something like 2 EUR. There is also a video presentation but it was in Spanish during my visit and I don't know whetrher there is an English version. It's closed in the early afternoon.

Really interesting sight under the square near playa San Lorenzo. Staff were very friendly and gave us am English guide. We spent about 40 minutes here as there's not lots to see bit what there is is fascinating: the ruins have been beautifully persevered and it's all very atmospheric. Recommended after a day at the beach; closes at 1pm and... More
