Santa María del Naranco. Prerrománico asturiano, Oviedo
(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • It is an architectural ensemble of the pre-Romanesque astur. Located at the foot of Monte Naranco, reprenta near San Miguel de Lillo and San Julián de los Prados pre-Romanesque in Oviedo. Built originally as a hunting lodge of the Asturian royalty, was added with the passage of time belfry, becoming rather than worship. It is ultimately a very representative group of the pre-Romanesque style in Asturias. In recent years has been careful your environment, once forgotten and invaded by weeds.
