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

You can only see San Miguel de Lillo together with Santa Maria del Naranco and they are BOTH well worth visiting. Get your ticket at the office below both monuments (EXCEPT on Tuesday!!! The office is closed and you must get your ticket at Santa Maria). You can only enter the two monuments with a Spanish guided tour. San Miguel... More

San Miguel de Lillo and Santa Maria del Naranco are spectacularly well preserved buildings from the 9th century and just a short journey from Oviedo. See them on your way in or out of town. It's well worth a couple of hours and you get some beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

It is definitely worth going out of Oviedo see the San Miguel de Lillo and the nearby Santa Maria del Naranco. We got a taxi from the town to take us up which was worth the money. Both ruins are open but not all the time so worth checking if you want a look at the inside - they were... More

This and the neighbouring Santa Maria del Naranco are fascinating to old church geeks like me- very atmospheric and full of fascinating detail. The guided tour may only be in Spanish; but it is worth tagging along to get inside. We never did find the visitors' centre. Taxi up, walk down!
