Monte Naranco, Oviedo

4.6
#2 of 12 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.

    It is worth going. Even that the day will be cloudy, looks perfect the dimension of the city from above. It tends to make air. You can park up. There are 4/5 places for cars, if not, to park below and upload to walk (15 min).

    I highly recommend it. Can be car-ride, see the two churches and then end in the more the monte alto. Since that day to heat and I was noblado and a spectacular embarrassment, Tiger mosquitoes abound
