Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano, Oviedo

4.7
#1 of 66 in Things to do in 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. Put Santa María del Naranco.

    It would be better if you could park, it is impossible to road is narrow and not fit many cars but I do not think it worth much is tour

    A building for binding of the pre-Romanesque Asturian, spectacular. The environment of monte Naranco and views of Oviedo, are one strong incentive to visit. The negative side, the organisation of the visit, the group is very large and within buildings not fit, everyone huddles, believe that it is an aspect to improve...

    A wonderful place. Visit to the pre-Romanesque. The attitude of the guide was something repellent, but at least knew of that spoke, and was competent.

  • 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
  • 👍
  • Nice view here
  • Beautiful, must see if you're near
