Picos de Europa, Asturias

#6 of 35 in Nature in Asturias
Explore Picos de Europa, a mountain range considered one of the most beautiful in Europe. Go for a walk, cycle, or simply enjoy the scenic drive. Look to the skies for choughs, eagles, vultures, and the area’s diverse butterfly population. Visit some of the towns for bars, restaurants, and shops. Sample the area’s famous blue cheeses, such as queso de cabrales, which is traditionally matured in caves. Take a cable car at the town of Fuente Dé and ascend 1,800 m (5,906 ft) to discover spectacular views. If you want to explore some of the more remote areas of the range, be aware that brown bears and wolves are spotted here.
