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.

  • Impossible take a cultural trip to Oviedo without visiting this jewel of instructed Asturian pre-Romanesque art built by King Alfonso II at the beginning of the S IX. It's beautiful inside and out while inside the paintings are quite damaged and are being restored. It is important to be clear about the visiting hours and recommend be accompanied by a guide which makes a lot more interesting to visit it

  • Again asuriano pre-Romanesque, worthy of visit abroad as well as the interior since it has some paint quite well preserved.

  • A must for any lover of pre-Romanesque art. It is encased between several roads but the temple is worth a visit. Stunning frescoes of this gem, with an imposing crucified of the s. XIII in the central bobeda. Not recommended, as follows.

  • Very beautiful and well maintained building pre-Romanesque. Re-fuel in Oviedo

  • The biggest disappointment. Huge break for a siesta. The church allowed only a half hour interval and exclusively when paying for tours in Spanish. If you don't speak Spanish, you pay full price, but instead the excursion will get a piece of paper with the outline of General information (from the Internet) in English, French or German. Lighting in the Church is very meager, the text is not to disassemble, use the Internet do not allow rules, phone, Tablet, banned. For so many centuries the Interior retained fragments, in the semi-darkness something yourself see difficult (apparently the guide must razjasnjat than we ought to admire, but without skilled care-only disappointment). Oviedo authorities hate aliens, hiring guides people, nor the words don't speak English? Recommendation-don't waste your time waiting for the end of the break, see the Church from the street, read information on the Internet. Saved time and money spend more profitably.

  • One of the Romanesque churches most beautiful I've seen. You can not fail to see it. His paintings are an authentic past

  • It is a Romanesque monument, world heritage. Visit essential if you come to Oviedo. Surrounded by a wonderful park. Today it is a Catholic Church.
