Galicia and Asturias Sights

El Mirador del Cable

  • Town/Village

Fodor's Review

As you approach the parador of Fuente Dé, at the head of the valley northwest of the hamlet of Espinama. you'll see a wall of gray rock rising 6,560 feet straight into the air. Visible at the top is the tiniest of huts: El Mirador del Cable (the cable-car lookout point). Get there via a 2,625-foot funicular (€16 round-trip). At the top, you can hike along the Ávila Mountain pasturelands, rich in wildlife, between the central and eastern massifs of the Picos. There's

an official entrance to Picos de Europa National Park here.
