Monte Naranco, Oviedo

(4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Monte Naranco part of your personalized Oviedo itinerary using our Oviedo family vacation planner.

  • Visit essential if it is to Oviedo. You can enjoy nature with a leisurely while access to the treasures of the pre-Romanesque (Santa Maria del Naranjo and San Miguel de Lillo) and the sacred heart, but to reach the latter, it must be careful with cars, because you share the paved road.

  • Clean and well kept. The views of the city are spectacular. It is worth the climb up there. Little room to park at rush hour.
