Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano, Oviedo

4.6
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.

  • Beautiful spot on the hill side. An informed tour. Even just to take pictures it's amazing. The tree next to it makes for fantastic photography too.
  • You need to come here if ypu are visiting Oviedo. This is one of the most famous monuments in the region and in the north of Spain. It is close to San Miguel de Lillo and also to the top of the Naranco's mountain
  • Beautiful example of pre-Romanesque architecture in a breathtaking surrounding. Like in a fairy tale.
  • A very interesting and historical place.
  • 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.
