Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano, Oviedo

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.

  • One of the sites of Oviedo more beautiful to see and also can go take a walk. I recommend everyone to come to Oviedo to come here for that it is worth seeing and you can then upload to the naranco, that if there is suitable to go by car

  • The Asturian ones we know it well, to outsiders, Santa María de el Naranco is the monument of the pre-Romanesque style that you should not miss. Unique in the world.

  • Jewel of Romanesque art in Spain, I think that little known out of Asturias. A shame because not only the Church is beautiful, but the landscape and views, the surrounding meadows are accurate. Near San Miguel de Lillo, a walk.

  • Well preserved historical Roman church. Unsure whether this is used as a worship place today, but somewhat likely. Certainly part of the pilgrimage route to Santiago. Entrance is free on Monday.
  • It used to be a palace and now it's used as a church sometimes. Wonderful example of prerromanic art and a treasure. The views are wonderful from here too
  • Great church
  • Nice view here
  • Santa María de el Naranco. It is an ancient Palace 4 km from Oviedo. It belongs to the Asturian pre-Romanesque and dates from the century lX. A delight to our eyes.
