(4.6/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • The Church is a wonder. Is very well preserved. Their interior of their time paintings are fantastic, as they have been able to withstand the passage of time without spoiling too. One of the best-preserved churches of his time.

  • Church perromanica located at the entrance of the city if you come on the motorway a visit worth it

  • Excellent historical monument of Asturian pre-Romanesque. Thanks to have maintained the cult Catholic until today day retains very well his inside, with an environment magic that evokes the first communities Christian with some precious paintings in their walls and a light spectacular. However the Church environment is disastrous, despite the fact that at least is in a small park, surrounds a Masterplan of horrible apartment blocks, very bad signal to reach the monument, parking impossible and personal monitoring that does not give you or the good days and you watch as the Gestapo.

  • 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
