Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano, Oviedo
(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Remarkably well preserved for being more than 1,000 years old, Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano has served as a hunting palace as well as a pre-Romanesque church. Its architecture is worth studying because of the age alone, but it’s also unique in style: at the front and the rear, four columns each form porticos. Note the sculpture of a Greek cross, which symbolizes the Asturian monarchy. Enjoy views down to the city of Oviedo and toward the statue of Christ on the cross. Put Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano into our Oviedo trip itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A place of compulsory visit to the monument and the environment. Good site for photos. Park in parking below and access by path, in the slope. Views of Oviedo.

  • The truth is that it is worth climbing to see this Asturian pre-Romanesque Palace because it is 4 km from Oviedo. There is also another Church close to the same style. In addition is situated in a beautiful spot from is sees all Oviedo. It only sticks is that there is a schema in the door to make it visit guided that not advises too because not puts the schema of them visits...

  • The viewpoint that there are in the Naranco is spectacular (photos that post), the views of all Oviedo incredible. On the monuments pre-Romanesque that you indicate that upload to see... are history and the history is beautiful, but, pay 3€ by enter to see it... as not. Access from the car park the first section is pretty bad since it is tree-lined driveway and this little care, but when raisins that stretch is accessed without any problems (I advise to climb the road cars to older people or people with problems to walk)
