II do not understand why these important places have these type of guides. The place was full of history while the guide looked like a machine. He was rude and not nice

The San Miguel De Lillo was an excellent building and goes well with two nearby attractions, the Santa Maria Del Naranco and Monte Naranco. It's easy to get to, especially by car, although me and my grandfather walked. It is an old building that is...More

A beautiful place to visit together with Santa Maria where you get a view of Oviedo and get to know with a very competent guide the ancient history of the place.

The San Miguel de Lillo Church was built in the 9th century and is one of the oldest churches in Spain. It was used as a chapel by King Ramiro I. It honors the Archangel Michael.

San Miguel is just a few hundred metres from Santa Maria so it makes sense to see both, although Santa Maria is the more interesting. You really need a car. I enjoy walking, but it is a long slog up from Oviedo. Pre-romanesque is uncommon...More

We visited this church, but were unable to go inside as this requires a being booked on a tour which was not available on the day we visited (a Monday). The church is a UNESCO world heritage site.
