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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Work Summit of pre-Romanesque Asturian his paintings inside are awesome, the perfect architectural structure and a Romanesque Christ on the altar only. It is clear because it is heritage. Although it is not the building most known of the pre-Romanesque style for me would be the first to visit.

  • Magnificent the pre-Romanesque church. You must visit for lovers of art. It is also located in a wonderful setting.
