Iglesia de San Julian de los Prados, Oviedo

(4.7/5 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.

  • Along with Santa María de el Naranco, San Miguel de Lillo and el Conventín is the fourth jewel of Asturian pre-Romanesque. Paid entry.

  • Church of Asturian pre-Romanesque art that becomes a walk; It is a construction that you can give a full rodeo and has restored the frescoes that cover the walls. For the lovers of the art is a place that not must lose is

  • San Julián de los Prados is one of the greatest exponents of the Asturian pre-Romanesque... come to Oviedo and not visit Santullano, is almost a sacrilege; If you like art, do not hesitate! you won't be disappointed!

  • 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
