Things to do round Potes, Picos de Europa

Jump to last reply

We have three full days based near Potes, May 2013. There isn't much information in the guide books. I don't read Spanish and am finding the google translations of some of the websites imprenetrable.

We enjoy pottering and stopping off to explore small villages and go into the churches. Husband enjoys photographing the architecture. We'd also like to do some easier walking.

We are planning on a full day round Potes and Fuente Dé including Santo Toribio de Liébana and a trip on the cable car.

Another day we are planning to drive north, stopping to look at the church of Santa Maria in Lebeña, then through the Hermida gorge and then west for the funicular up to Bulnes, possibly driving as far as Treviso at the end of the road.What is this road like? If time allows we'll also visit Covadonga and Lagos Enol and Ercina.

The last day I was thinking of heading south east and exploring the villages off the CA184. This will include Aniezo (mills), Piasca (church of Santa Maria la Real), Ermita de Santa Teressa in San Felices de Castilleria (murals). If time allows we'd like to get as far as Cevera de Pisuerga before heading back to Potes.

I'd discounted going up to Cain for the Cares Gorge walk, because of the road. It looks very narrow and I don't think husband would be very happy driving it....

Is there any other 'must see' places during the three days that I've not found and which we ought to add to the list?
