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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Oviedo vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Excelente para conocer el arte prerrománico asturiano en un entorno precioso muy bien conservado recomiendo vista guiada more »Excellent to know the Asturian pre-Romanesque art in a beautiful setting very well preserved I recommend guided view
Under construction so we could not see it inside but I am glad we went. The view is beautiful and there is a restaurant nearby were you can enjoy it. The palace is first.
I only saw the place from outside, so I don't know about the guided tour but the building is not to be missed. Unique in it's genre.
