Monte Naranco, Oviedo

4.6
#2 of 8 in Parks in Oviedo
Admire truly panoramic vistas of Oviedo, the distant blue mountains, and the coast at Monte Naranco. There's road access to the top, though it also makes a beautiful hike, if you're up to it. The mountain is also home to bike trails used for numerous bike races. On the way up, be sure to stop at the Romanesque shrines, Santa María del Naranco and San Miguel de Lillo, dating from the heyday of the Kingdom of Asturias. At the top stands a 35 m (114 ft) statue, The Sacred Heart of Jesus, opening his arms to the landcape. The summit also makes a spectacular place to enjoy a picnic, with rustic wood tables perched atop the grass.

  • It's worth climbing to the summit, a clear day. You'll see Oviedo from a special perspective. The valleys and mountains that surround them. It is visible Gijón and the sea of the summit. The view of Oviedo is a spectacle. As well as the Magdalena and the Aramo mountain range. On the ascension path you can enjoy the visit to Santa Maria and San Miguel de Lillo, two jewels that alone deserve a visit. It also has somewhere to replenish forces such as the Rest of the Cowboy, good barbecue, overlooking Oviedo.

  • Beautiful views of Oviedo. Awesome place. Highly recommended
  • There are some spectacular views at the top of Monte Naranco. You can overlook the city of Oviedo. The cathedrals and the football stadium are distinct. It definetly worth a visit particularly if you are a tourist or living there for a short while
