Monte Naranco, Oviedo

4.6
#2 of 24 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.

  • 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 »

  • Nice view point.
  • Impressive, if you look at the mountain of the city with the statue of Jesus. There, the path on the mountain is worth because there is also an excellent view of the city and the surrounding area from there.

  • A jewel of the pre-Romanesque style that should not miss it, and not only because of the views observed from the city of Oviedo.

  • As someone said: "... the reference of the pisapraos of Oviedo". Access rolled up to the top and one of the best views of the Valley of Oviedo
