Asturias has some of the oldest ruins in all of Spain, some of which are in Oviedo. These include, but are not limited to 3 which are located on MONTE DE NARANCO just a few kilometers outside of the main city: SANTA MARIA DEL NARANCO, SAN MIGUEL DE LILLO and SANTA CRISTINA DE LENA. All 3 were built in the pre-romanesque period of Ramiro I (842-850). All are within a few meters of each other and can be viewed for a small donation equivalent to about one dollar US. You can't miss this site!
Aside from this being a very interesting site in-of-itself, it offers a nice vista of Oviedo for photographs.
This cathedral of Romanique style is very corious: it's single towered.
To visit the cathedral, if you are walking by the pedestrian zone, you must take your way from the Town Hall by the street under the central arch. In five minutes you will arrive to the Cathedral's Square.
Remember: Enjoy the site seeing in the cathedral square.
Oviedo is the capital of Asturias. Stands to reason that there will be some lovely and schwanky structures there.
We walked through this plaza on our way to lunch. This beautiful building, with its balconies, caught my attention.
Oviedo has some beautiful churches. We had a string of bad luck in trying to see the interiors. This one, just outside the old town, was closed for a funeral.
These were close to the park but we spotted several more around the city, very impressed, like things like that!
Just about every roundabout or major junction has a fountain, some really impressive ones, particularly liked this one.
Huge market, close to the Cathedral is a must on Sunday morning, find all those bargains you never knew that you needed.
La Catedral was built in the 14th century, but was placed on the fundaments of a 9th century basilique.
San Miguel de Lillo is located in the same area as as Santa Maria del Naranco. All the information you need to find this very cool site is in the tip above.
