Monte Naranco, the best panoramic views of Oviedo. A mountain, a legend
This hill presides over the city and is closely linked to the citizens of Oviedo. Locals and tourists go there both to enjoy the outdoors and to appreciate the two jewels of the Spanish pre-Romanesque that are located there: the Church of Santa María del Naranco and San Miguel de Lillo.
Both churches were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985. They are not to be missed.
