He’s looking down on you

The Statue of Christ on Mount Naranco, Oviedo, Spain

Just on the outskirts of the city of Oviedo is the 634 metre high (2,080ft) Mount Naranco. The journey up this mountain to the summit is certainly worth it, if just to see the statue of The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the views of Oviedo and the Asturian landscape below.

However, the two magnificent pre-Romanesque style churches that you pass on the way, truly make it worthwhile on their own.
