San Miguel de Lillo, Oviedo

Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
In a country full of magnificent cathedrals, San Miguel de Lillo can seem nondescript. The relatively small size of this 9th-century church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, belies the critical role that it played in maintaining Christianity during Moorish rule. Take note of the pre-Romanesque style that would later become prominent in Spanish cathedral design. Inside, columns (as opposed to pillars) separate the three naves, which are decorated with Byzantine and North African motifs. The hillside location offers fine views of Oviedo and the surrounding mountains. Using our international travel planner, Oviedo attractions like San Miguel de Lillo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • One of the jewels that constitute the pre-Romanesque little peninsula is essential to your visit, next to Santa María de el Naranco. There are hits free Monday which can be completed with the audio guides of tourism page, but should be attentive to the opening hours or only you will see on the outside, I've posted them here. The rest of the week there are guided tours.

  • Same comment as for Santa María de el Naranco. Must-see visit is made together with Santa Maria and is worth a guide that explains the details and a visit to the interior

  • Get the guided tour that starts in Santa María del Naranco, you won't regret it :-) San Miguel de Lillo is probably one of the pre-Romanesque monuments more important in the world.

  • What we see today are the remains of one much larger basilica was built by the Asturian King Ramiro I in the 9th century, as part of its Palatine complex in monte Naranco. It is heritage.
