Monte Naranco, Oviedo

4.6
#2 of 33 in Nature in Asturias
Admire truly panoramic vistas of Oviedo, the distant blue mountains, and the coast at Monte Naranco. There's road access to the top, though it also makes a beautiful hike, if you're up to it. The mountain is also home to bike trails used for numerous bike races. On the way up, be sure to stop at the Romanesque shrines, Santa María del Naranco and San Miguel de Lillo, dating from the heyday of the Kingdom of Asturias. At the top stands a 35 m (114 ft) statue, The Sacred Heart of Jesus, opening his arms to the landcape. The summit also makes a spectacular place to enjoy a picnic, with rustic wood tables perched atop the grass.

  • In the photos you can not appreciate how impressive that is, upload and see it also is easily accessible and in 15 minutes by car from Oviedo are there

  • I visited with a friend, during the last day of my trip in Asturias. Being quite late at night, there was very little light and so we didn't get to walk around much or even just to reach the peaks of Mount. We, instead, concentrate on the two churches of San Miguel de Lillo and Santa María del Naranco, individual pieces of Romanesque style of the area, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fun fact: my friend (the place) I revealed that the difficult curve facing the churches is sometimes used by examiners to driving school to test the abilities of those who want to get my license. I don't know why, but I found it an interesting information that comes up and makes it much more "human" this enchanted place.

  • Despite visiting the city on more than 10 occasions this was my first time visiting the monument. As I had a hire car I chose to drive up, almost to the top. The drive wasn't too bad but you need to b...  more »

  • There are some spectacular views at the top of Monte Naranco. You can overlook the city of Oviedo. The cathedrals and the football stadium are distinct. It definetly worth a visit particularly if you are a tourist or living there for a short while
  • The views are amazing. It is a fair walk from oviedo but not too far. Windy at the top... Be prepared. But ultimately absolutely stunning. The woods on the way up are beautiful too. Lots of little streams. And the churches on route are well kept/restored.
  • Nice view point.
  • A great place to upload with stunning views. The day I went there was fog, and from what I see in the rest of the reviews seems that it is almost normal, but still worth the climb. From below to above is can go contemplating different monuments, such as the churches of San Miguel de Lillo and Santa María de el Naranco, that I liked on the outside. The site lets you open mouth. It is a popular climb among cyclists, so it must be caution since it is common to meet them and the road is somewhat narrow. I could make some photos from a little below the Naranco, until "absorb us" fog.

  • 因為沒有交通工具,所以從市區搭計程車到雕像再回到山腰的教堂,包含停車拍照總共約20歐元。從教堂再慢慢走下山,沿路風景不錯,展望很好。
