Breathtaking views and this monument is just amazing. This statute can be seen from the city. It is on the highest point of the town. I found this monument randomly. As I was driving through town I can see the monument and I kept driving until I reached it. It was well worth the adventure.

It is worth to visit so you can see the whole of Oviedo from the highs, especially on a clear day. And then you can go down the road and visit Santa Maria del Naranco. If you go by car, be mindful that there is very limited space, so if you enjoy a walk around, you can do a hike. I think it takes around an hour by foot.

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.
