Guía del viaje

Día 1

Pravia

Built around
780 by the king Silo, modified during the 17th and 18th centuries and restored
in the 20th century. It has a basilical plan of three naves and a single
semicircular apse, modified in the 17th century to turn it into a tripartite
chevet with a transept somewhat wider than the naves. Covered with a flat
wooden roof except the apse that was covered with a sinter dome.

Las Regueras

With a basilical plan of three four – section naves, separated by semicircular stilted arches upon square pillars with wooden saddle cover on the central one and a shed cover on the lateral one. It has a straight three vaulted apses chevet with a secret chamber upon the central one and a lobby that possibly had two lateral chambers.

Oviedo

It is a martyrdom church formed by two rectangular superimposed naves, the lower one
corresponds to the original construction and it is covered by a barrel vault.
The upper one consisted of a nave plus an apse although the nave was modified
in the 12th century. It is a clear precedent of the structure of St. María del
Naranco.

Día 2

Oviedo

Built at one Km far from Oviedo, it has a three nave basilical plan, separated by semicircular arches upon square pillars with wooden saddle roof in the central one. It has a transverse nave, higher than the central one and with the same kind of covering, straight three vaulted apse chevet with a secret chamber upon the central one and a lobby with two lateral chambers. It keeps remnants of paintings of great interest.

Oviedo

It is a recreational palace formed by two superimposed naves of rectangular plan, both vaulted, with two window galleries, one on each side, in the upper one, that form two rooms in the lower one. Covered with barrel vaults upon bonder arches that correspond to buttresses in the outside and an excellent sculpted decoration in great harmony with the building, meaning a change of style with regard to the previous monuments.

Oviedo

With a three nave basilical plan but in sheer Ramiro style, very diffrent to the ones of the previous period. Only the third part remains as the rest was buried in a landslide in the Middle Ages. It is wholy vaulted with a very complex system. The naves are separated by columns; it keeps a stand upon the portico and a very rich decoration.

Lena

It consists of a single rectangular nave that includes the elevated presbitery with an iconostasis of Mozarabic type and a stand, also elevated, at the portico. It has four rectangular annexes: a major chapel, a lobby and two lateral vestries. The whole covered with a barrel vault and buttresses. Decoration from various periods: Visigothic, Ramiro and Mozarabic.

Día 3

Colunga

Church with basilical plan, with three naves with four sections each, separated by semicircular arches upon square pillars, covered in wood with flat tripartite chevet, although only remnants remain from the central chapel. It has little wreathed decoration and geometrical motifs of poor quality. It represents a kind of rural church of the period of Alphonse the Third.

Villaviciosa

Although
it was consecrated in 921, due to its characteristics it is considered to
belong to the period of Alphonse the Third. It has a basilical plan with three
naves with three separated sections by semicircular arches in brick upon square
pillars, with flat tripartite chevet; the central chapel somwehat higher with
enclosed round of arches upon columns with capitals and rest of paintings.

Villaviciosa

Built by Alphonse the Third for his retirement, it was consecrated in 893. It has a basilical plan with three naves covered by a barrel vault of four sections separated by semicircular arches upon square pillars, with a flat tripartite chevet; the central chapel somewhat higher; a stand over the lobby and the central portico. Windows wth dry cap and rests of paintings inside. It is one of the most interesting buildings in Spanish Pre Romanesque.
