Picos de Europa
Picos de Europa : Michelin's recommendations
Los Picos de Europa are always a hit with lovers of dramatic landscapes and the range has no lack of viewpoints overlooking often sumptuous scenery. Among the main viewpoints worth stopping at are the Mirador del Cable on the Fuente Dé (that of la Reina), the Piedrafitas on the road to Puerto de Panderruedas, the Mirador de Llesba and the Mirador de Oseja de Sajambre. Follow the southern passes road and take in the puerto de San Glorio, the puerto de Pandetrave, the Panderruedas and the del Pontón. On a different scale, you will be impressed by the 20km of gorges of the Desfiladero de la Hermida (to the east) and the defiles of the Upper Cares Valley. However, it is inevitable that the Desfiladero de los Beyos (to the west) wins the day with its 10km-long deep canyon flooded in sunshine. Majestic landscapes make wonderful sites for sanctuaries such as Covadonga or towns like Potes. So keep your eyes peeled!
