San Julian de los Prados is a 9th-century church that is considered a great piece of Asturian art, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The architecture resembles the Roman style.

  • I go often because I live nearby, it is worth visiting and the Mass of 12 is very enjoyable, it is focused for children, this choir that does it quite well, you have a few specific hours to make sightseeing, but it is one of the jewels of the city of Oviedo.

  • One of the most different churches you can find in Spain. Paintings that make you go back to almost a millennium ago. Very nice and certain indications of the guide. Highly recommended.

  • Preromanesque church with well-preserved frescoes influenced by those of Pompej and depicting mostly architectural themes. Modern sketches of missing parts give a good impression of what the overall interior looked like. The guided tour (in Spanish) by a knowledgeable docent costs two euros and is a real bargain. Leaflets are available in other languages.
  • It'S Beautiful! Inside you are enchanted with the old paintings... And masses are still being officiated. And if you delve into its history it will attract the change that has suffered around it. Central and next to a very handsome park.
