Photos: Oviedo - old and new buildings

Parts of the church of San Tirso el Real date from the time of Alfonso 11 (791-842). The triple arch window is original. A the front of the building there is a Roman soldier standing in a niche.
Modern building works still preserve old walls. The scaffolding is holding up the old house front while new work takes place behind. This will eventually join the old facade.
