Laboral University of Gijon is a monumental combination of buildings. This contemporary art and cultural centre is located in the Laboral University premises, 3 km from the city of Gijon and just 800m from Quinta Duro. Built between 1946 and 1956, is the most important architectural work built in the 20th century in Asturias. The university site covers over 270,000 square metres of land and the walls of the different buildings would make up a surface of 55,000 square metres. As well as being the largest building in Spain it also encloses the biggest elliptical church in the world. To top this off, the Laboral Clock Tower stands defiant at 130 metres tall, once again the tallest stone construction in the country. The design of the tower was inspired by Alexandria Lighthouse and Seville’s Torre del Oro.
