We did a ship tour to Oviedo and enjoyed wondering down the Old City to find the beautiful church the Cathedral de San Salvador.For some reason the church was closed and we could not go inside. We had to meander around the streets to walk around the beautiful church.

A beautiful cathedral in Oviedo where is kept the "sudario" (piece of cloth that covered the face of Christ when he was put on the tomb) the authenticity was certified by the Nasa and besides when put on top of the Turin shroud the blood stains coincide exatly. On the secon floor, the Camara Santa you can see the Victory... More

We had a few hours to kill before travelling to Asturias (Oviedo) airport for a flight and decided to visit the old town, which we had been told was very attractive. Well it is really quite small and isn't particularly attractive. Completely underwhelmed we went to the Cathedral at around 3.45 and they were closing the doors.We could see no... More

Inside the Cathedral you can see one of two artifacts that is said to have the blood of Jesus on it. Nothing has been proven 100% but we still found it really interesting. I feel like it you are there, pay for the audio tour to see the beautiful carvings inside to also say to you saw it. Form your... More

Here was one of my favorite places in Oviedo. I came by around here many times but it was such a shame that I didn't make a tour to go inside of this hitoric cathedral. Even if you dont' have enough time to make a trip, it's still worth to wander around the square and enjoy a coffee or drink... More

Audio guide so that you can see and understand all the detail. There is a charge to go in but that is perfectly reasonable. You need at least 1.5 hours for this visit.

You oget audio sticks when you pay at the entrance. The English was very good, though a little odd in places and sometimes erred on the side of trying to explain the Christian rationale for the feature it was focussing on. The musuem commentary was far too detailed for me to listen to it. I am religious, but even for... More

The cathedral San Sakvador is a great old building on a very large square. It is a pity you have to pay for enter the church-museum. You cannot visit the cathedral only without paying. The museum has some nice rooms. It is not usual you have to pay when you want to visit the church only.

The cathedral is very nice but it now charges a fee to get in (7€), not something all catholics are willing to do and I have to say I agree with them. It's a pity a church closes the door on them...

Very nice setting for the cathedral, in the main city square. We did the audio-guide tour around the museum but the tape focused too often on things that were obvious to our eyes, very little history links and not much content to please a wide variety of visitors. The spaces seem to lack a bit of fresh air or air-conditioning... More
