Monte Naranco, Oviedo
(4.6/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • Great place to take pictures of Oviedo from the heights you can climb by car to the same foot of Christ

  • It is worth climbing up to the Naranco since the views of the city are spectacular. To rise or the essential drop in Santa Maria del Naranco and San Miguel de Lillo
    View original
  • In my opinion the best cities are which can be viewed in full from a high point. The Tibidabo in Barcelona, Kobetamendi in Bilbao, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Alexanderplatz in Berlin... The Naranco is the best point of view to see the capital of the Principality in full. I'm from here and I still go every month.
