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.
