Iglesia de San Julian de los Prados, Oviedo
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Iglesia de San Julian de los Prados is a 9th-century church that is considered a great piece of Asturian art, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The architecture resembles the Roman style. There is very little original decoration remaining on the church, but look for the marble capitals at the tops of the pillars. You can also see original frescos on the walls and ceiling. The building is just next to a freeway, so it’s easy to find.

  • A Romanesque, early 19th century a.d.! It should be kept as a relic. Unfortunately the lack of funds for conservation there are! Is a splendid structure with three naves. The brick roof lets through a bit of moisture at the expense of residual frescoes, still partly visible. Mezabica architecture is a jewel for the balance. Preserve in our view two extraordinary images in polychrome wood which are the crucifix on the main altar in the nave and a Madonna with child in the chapel on the left. (Right to the Viewer) This is surely the richest of the three pre-Romanesque churches of Oviedo. The others are San Miguel de Lillo and Santa Maria of the hoist line. Both not to be missed.

  • We could not see it on the inside. It is incredible that having this heritage only teach it two hours a day. And above I believe that they do not allow photos. Someone I can explain because cannot be photos, of course without Flash? and because they open just 2 hours?

  • Imprescindible visita del Prerománico Asturiano
  • A beautiful church of the pre-Romanesque style, giving the impression of being smaller on the outside to inside. It is also curious paintings of Romanesque art and the latticework of their small windows, although only one is original. Its price is €2 and the visit can be guided, which is included in the price and is worth.

  • Visit essential, and relatively cheap, a penalty that is next to the motorway and that subtract you a landscape value.

  • To those who will not like this monument is it have failed to explain. It is the largest and most complete Church of the Asturian Kings. Not it is Romanesque, 200 years before, is not leaving barely buildings from this period in Western Europe. Why can it be considered large and retains almost all of its frescoes. The Christ is Romanesque and as parish operating say the oldest in Spain. When we here speak English, Holywood would have already made a dozen of films with the Asturian Kings... These would already like to churches in nationalist territory. Not only is art, it is a symbol. The aberrant is that 40 years ago will let you do the Highway 5 m from the foundations
