“Gorgeous views and stunning statue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This mountain overlooks Oviedo, and climbing it is doable in just over an hour, although the path is a little overworn. Many go up by bike too. The views of the city are the best from here. By night, a light shines upon the statue for all below to see

“Come for the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great view of Oviedo- not much else except for some civil war-era bunkers just south of the peak. Visit during the winter for the best view.

“Best view over Oviedo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Principly everything has been said about this spot in the existing recommendations. I am writing this because I have much nicer pictures to add than the one that are in TA at the moment.
Fantastic place to be when there is nice weather, the view is impressive, the statue too, it's really big and overwhelming. Nice for a walk though quite steep. Good opportunity to feel better after some rich Asturian meal.
4 points only because you can really access it by car so close, than you can nearly touch the statue from the driver seat. This reduces a bit the honour of the place, I would prefer that at least the last 100 meter would be a must to walk, this would also reduce the noise around this place. But this is a typical example for the differences in cultures.....that we want to experience by travelling the world.

“Iconic church of Asturias”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Very easily accessible from the town centre, offers a very pretty example of pre-Romanic religious architecture very well preserved in a countryside-like scenery.

What a view of Oviedo!!! The actual structure has been kept in its original state thus one can really appreciate the architecture of the times.
