This is really a representative monument of the "pre-romanic" style. It is a palace of the Ramiro The First's court. The palace is very good conservated despite its eleven centuries from the buiding Up ago. If your imagination is ready to travel through the history,...More

These buildings in the hills are well looked after and a peaceful place to visit. Be sure you have walking shoes on.

Well preserved historical Roman church. Unsure whether this is used as a worship place today, but somewhat likely. Certainly part of the pilgrimage route to Santiago. Entrance is free on Monday.

Simply beautiful! I went in January, it was cold but sunny. My timing was perfect because the day I left Asturias it started to rain. The view of Oviedo from Santa Maria del Naranco is absolutely breathtaking. So green and fresh! The two buildings aren't...More

I visited the Santa Maria Del Naranco while on my way to the summit of Monte Naranco, in order to see the Christ statue and the surrounding views, which covered almost the whole of Asturias. Just like the San Miguel De Lillo, which is only...More

For someone who is not religious, I certainly spent a lot of time in churches in Spain, mostly very grand. This one is unique, though, a delicate, charming structure. You can just feel the tremendous age of it (over 1,000 years). When we were there,...More
