  • Chronologically, Asturian art ranges from the first stammerings of the Kingdom of Asturias, following the impact of the Muslim invasion and subsequent reorganization Christian in the North (8th century), until the late manifestations of the 10th century where we find already Mozarabic influences. The ASTURIAN pre-ROMANESQUE art has its place in development in the extension that took the Asturian monarchy in the early phases of the reconquista. I.e. geographically covers the Atlantic Northern Strip (Asturias and Cantabria) and Galicia. A_la_hora_de analyze the General characteristics of the Asturian art, must consider these seven points: 1) completely disappears the Horseshoe arch, being replaced by semicircular arches; (2) the walls are of masonry or ashlars and exterior buttresses is usual; (3) the churches are basilical, with three naves, three apses rectangular and elevated grandstand at the foot; 4) disappearing columns on the separation of the ships, being replaced by much heavier square pillars; (5) the coverage of the buildings is flat, wooden, except in headings; (6) the carved decoration is reduced to the latticework of windows and little else, but is used throughout the building's rich painting decoration; and 7) cares much the exterior design of the churches, with a clear difference in height between the aisles and central, and a gate of great beauty, history very clearly of Romanesque art. We can consider at least 10 jewels of pre-Romanesque in Asturias, sacred and places full of history which have survived over the centuries and which were raised by the ancient kings of Asturias: 1. Santa Maria del Naranco 2. San Miguel de Lillo 3. San Julián of Prados 4. Santa Cristina de Lena 5. Santiago de Gobiendes 6. San Pedro de Nora 7. Santo Adriano de Tuñón 8. Santianes de Pravia 9. San Andrés de Bedriana 10. San Salvador de Valdediós makes 13 years could live with the monks of San Salvador de Valdediós and lift us to Matins... anything already not be allowed to happen, because unfortunately, "el Conventín" threw the closure almost 5 years ago, when the friars Tarsicio Lemarié and Juan de Dios (of the community of San Juan) left the enclosure. Really a shame, because live that experience within its walls remains engraved. As it remains recorded the beauty of Asturian pre-Romanesque.

  • Very good models and explanations. Attended us a very nice girl with lots of skill to children. You gave to my 8 year old son a simple questionnaire with questions that had to be answering with what to learn in the visit to the Memorial, if I got to carry well answered, gave him a cutout to make a model in role of Santa Maria: the child was pending not to miss the explanation to earn their demo. The guide that explains the two churches is also very nice and pleasant.

  • It is not a must, but it is interesting to take a look at which raise or lower of Santa Maria and San Miguel, as it is on the road from the car park.

  • El prerromano es la joya arquitectónica de Asturias. No dejes de visitarlo.
  • Very friendly and Nice, they explained very well the best way to see the sights. They have a store with some souvenirs of Asturias and an exhibition that explains the fifteen monuments that exist in Asturias.
