2017 Spring Danielle Nanni Temple in Spain Temple Summer

Neighbor to the North

Gijón is a coastal city just a twenty minute bus ride away from Oviedo. Known for its sidra and its beaches, Gijón is a popular destination in Asturias for weekend trips. Throughout the semester, Temple students took day trips to the neighboring city.




When there’s a break in the rainy weather, Asturians rush to the beach to soak up some sun.


It addition to its shores, the city is filled with scenic parks and recreational areas.


Students from Temple University and other exchange students for La Casa de Las Lenguas (the language program for foreigners that Temple University is partnered with), pose for a group photo with the Temple flag.
