This wonderful church, jewel of the preromanesque art, is a must when you are in Oviedo! Lovely palace and part of the World Heritage was a summer palace of Kings, a church and resting place where the city could be under control but far from the busy city life. I have been living in Asturias for quite a lot but... More

The attendant paced about the church during my visit although she did point out the unique Asturian cross painting. There is a little guide leaflet in English.

If you like ancient churches, and want to see something much different from the Gothic churches in Oviedo, San Julian de los Prados is a magnificent church to explore. Built in the 9th century, its painted walls and decorations speak to you across the centuries. We were in awe when we walked in. The church is well-preserved and you can... More

It was a Sunday when I went and the door was closed, so all I could do was look round the outside. (There's a tripartite double-columned window at the back that's very like windows at Santa Maria, St Tirso and San Miguel.) Otherwise I'll have to go back. A notice on the door said that visitors could be shown round... More

While the architecture cannot match the perfect ratios of Santa Maria del Naranco, the beautiful (and amazingly well-preserved and well-restored) frescoes make San Julian a VERY special place. It also is in continued use (which is not true of the other pre-Romanesque churches in the area) and the guard/ticket seller/guide is a member of the congregation and has been working... More

The location is a bit shocking- who would think the government would build a six-lane highway only a few yard's from the church's front door? This does not detract from the visit and there is talk of re-routing the highway away from the church.
