“Worth the hike uphill !”
Review of Monte Naranco

Staying with some friends, they suggested we have a "walk up this hill" When we got there, we realised it was more than a walk and more than a hill ! However, 10 and 60 year olds included we all made it to the top and it was worth it. Fantastic views over the city and surrounding countrysides. Its a bit of a hike but worth persevering!

It is quite a drive up to this statue of Christ but well worth the effort - the statue itself is awesome - and the views all around of Oviedo and surrounding area quite stunning - we went up in the morning and had a beautiful drift of clouds below us which were gradually burnt away in the sunshine. Some walk up - quite a challenge. Worth stopping by to look at the Romanesque churches on the way up.

We decided to walk to this monument on the hill which can ve seen from Oviedo. At times it felt as though the road may not be right one but we got there. Walking shoes are a must. And the view from here is fabulous.

We originally planned to walk from our hotel and after asking the receptionist how long it would take (45 minutes) decided we would do it in early evening when the weather would be a bit cooler As it turned out the weather changed and there was a good chance of rain As such we decided to drive up and realised this was a lucky break - we would never of made it through walking We parked in the lower car park which left a 10 minute climb to the top Once there the views over the city were very impressive It was great fun trying to pick out the various landmarks that we had visited over the past 3 years

Steep climb, but not to long, to rewarding view of Oviedo and large part of central Asturias. Enjoy.
