It's on the way to Naranco. You can get guided tour there, although there isn't much to see. The best part is the view of the city. It's far away, so if you don't like walking, better go by car.

Well, it's a nice old stone church, but there is nothing around you can enjoy (except the green nature). The good thing is you can go to Naranco Church which is at only 3-5 minutes walking down the road and if you continue another 5 minutes you can find a place to have a lunch.

Well worth a look, very interesting but not as good as the Santa Maria church a couple of minutes away. Do them both, if you are fond of ancient architecture you won't be disappointed.

A bit more ornate than its Santa Maria del Naranco counterpart, and a stone's throw away, it's one the things you absolutely must visit in Oviedo. And it's been there for over 1100 years. A nice walk up from town.

Visited this site while driving around Oviedo but I was a bit lost as to it's significance as there wasn't any literature on display when we got there. There were however small tour groups, so may be best to visit as a part of a tour. Good views of the city though

The old Romanesque church stands on the hillside above Oviedo just above the Santa Maria del Naranco one. While Lillo is not as spectacular as Naranco, it is worth visiting. As noted in the review for Naranco, make sure it is open when you plan to visit --- it is quite a way out of town and it would be... More

You can access it by car or by bus. See my review of Santa Maria del Naranco, as the two buildings form a single visit.

We took the bus from Oviedo and climbed up to this old church and for 3 euros had a one hour tour both this and the adjacent Santa Maria del Naranco. There is also a free visitor center.

If you have seen the Santa Maria del Naranco then you will want to see this building too, believed to be by the same architect. Not quite as stunning but sill very beautiful.

Like with Santa Maria, when I arrived here I found a group inside with a guide telling them about it, so I just squeezed in with them and looked around and listened. No-one seemed to object, and I got the impression that it was normal. I never saw a visitor centre so i never bought a ticket. If I should... More
