San Julian de los Prados is a 9th-century church that is considered a great piece of Asturian art, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The architecture resembles the Roman style. There is very little original decoration remaining on the church, but look for the marble capitals at the tops of the pillars. You can also see original frescos on the walls and ceiling. The building is just next to a freeway, so it’s easy to find.

  • Interesting but not stunning, but worth the €2 for the tour (which is only in Spanish).
  • The Church is beautiful, as well as the environment: in the back there is a meadow garden with trees and benches for relaxing or sunbathing. The interior is fairly well preserved (photos cannot be), but best of all is the Guide: you explained in great detail and makes the visit enjoyable.

  • Wonderful Romanesque church decorated with ancient painting in the Orthodox Greek style. Must see! Little treasure hidden near the center of Oviedo.

  • A true gem of pre-Romanesque. Something unique to see, the Asturian Sistine Chapel. His paintings are impressive. Guided tours are every 30 min and very well explained.
