Gijón (Asturian: Xixón), is a coastal industrial city and its municipality
in the autonomous community of Asturias in Spain.
Early mediaeval texts mention it as "Gigia".
It was an important regional Roman city, although the area has been settled
since earliest history.
The name was originally applied to a small peninsula presently referred to as
Cimavilla, literally "top of village," between two beaches, one of which has a
recreational port today.
The main port, one of the largest in the north of Spain, is called "El Musel".
Gijón has a barely growing population of approximately 277,000 (2006).
