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 visit to this building is essential in a trip to Oviedo. The outside is beautiful but the interior is a true gem. Do not miss it!

  • Without words. Amazing visit to understand the pre-Romanesque Asturian. The guide was very pleasant. A real gem.

  • San Julián meadow is one of the places included in the list of the world heritage of the Unesco. Incredible paintings partly intact since the 9th century. Very good explanation of the person in charge. The payment of only €3 is very much worth

  • The biggest disappointment. Huge break for a siesta. The church allowed only a half hour interval and exclusively when paying for tours in Spanish. If you don't speak Spanish, you pay full price, but instead the excursion will get a piece of paper with the outline of General information (from the Internet) in English, French or German. Lighting in the Church is very meager, the text is not to disassemble, use the Internet do not allow rules, phone, Tablet, banned. For so many centuries the Interior retained fragments, in the semi-darkness something yourself see difficult (apparently the guide must raz'jasnjat' than we ought to admire, but without skilled care-only disappointment). Oviedo authorities hate aliens, hiring guides people, nor the words don't speak English? Recommendation-don't waste your time waiting for the end of the break, see the Church from the street, read information on the Internet. Saved time and money spend more profitably.

  • It is a Romanesque monument, world heritage. Visit essential if you come to Oviedo. Surrounded by a wonderful park. Today it is a Catholic Church.

  • Important monument for said art pre-novel characteristic of this place to the North of the Spain, we can say that it has not been spared by the route of the motorway and there is concern for its strength, so hurry up to visit, until it is in ruins!

  • Essential to the Asturian pre-Romanesque church. It is not a building that you visit the tourism and I think that it is a pity to miss it.
