Culture. Places of interest.

The Museum of the Royal School of Viñón, at about 2 km from the capital (Santa Eulalia/Santolaya), on the lower margin of the road to Villaviciosa-Ingesto, 7 km to Villaviciosa and 15 km to Nava. There is also a Church under the advocation of Saint Julian. It is a Romanesque Church however it also takes Asturian preRomanesque elements and it was declared of cultural interest.

The Museum is housed in the old school, which dates back to 1907 and was built according to the project of the provincial architect Javier Aguirre Iturralde. The building was designed as a primary school, accommodating up to 120 students on the lower floor, while the upper served as a residence for teachers and their families.
In the Church of St. Julian of Viñón, which is considered a historic-artistic monument, we can see a mixture between the Asturian pre-Romanesque art and the Romanesque. It is a church of rectangular plan with almost flat gabled roof and a square chapel, narrower than the nave. The sacristy and the porch of the church are later additions. It originally had three entrances of which only one remains. Most remarkable is its chapel that is accessed by a triple arch thread. The sides are blind arches on columns, non starting from the soil, but from a bench. The chapiters of the columns are decorated with different motifs: animals devouring human figures, plants intertwining, etc.

The parish church of Santa Eulalia, from the 15th century, is a large rectangular building. Inside is the image of San Francisco de Paula, which enjoys great devotion.

The Church of San Martín el Real, in Mannerist style, is a large temple of one nave with a semi-hexagonal apse and ribbed Vault and a small chapel attached to the North wall. It has two entrances, one next to the main entrance, where there is the Bell Tower of square base and another on one side.
