Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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
