Asturias is an area that is marked by its natural borders. It has the mountainous Picos de Europa National Park to the east, the Cantabrian mountains to the south, the Parque Natural de Somiedo to the west, and the Bay of Biscay to the north.
It’s rich in vegetation, mountains, lakes and coastal areas. In other words: nature abounds
The lakes are one of the many highlights of Asturias. When you are up there, your body is replenished with every breath of fresh air, and you immediately realize how pure the ambience generally is in Asturias.
Life in tranquility
Village I. Apart from your footsteps, there are no sounds. The soft edges of the clouds touch upon the rooftops of the rustic houses.
Stones and snow
Every rooftop is scattered with stones, to protect the houses against heavy snowfall.
Every village has a church, as if its priests compete at who preaches closest to God.
The Saint Cave
Village II. The Saint Cave, engraved in the mountain rocks, holds the shrine devoted to Virgin Mary.
The lower, greener valleys of the mountains are inhabited by friendly herds of cows. They contribute to the production of the region's famous 'Queso Cabrales' that is sold as the main merchandise in the mountain villages' tiny shops.
