Lion Park

The Picos de Europa National Park was created around the Park of Covadonga, the monastery and the Lakes of Covadonga. Today covers part of the provinces and communities of Asturias, Cantabria and Leon within the community of Castile and Leon, Spain. It’s the second of Spain most visited National Park after Teide National Park, in the Canary Islands. The best-known of the Picos de Europa are the route of Cares and the Lakes of Covadonga. The Ruta del Cares is a journey of little more than 11 miles in the middle of the Picos de Europa which separates peoples of Cain and Poncebos, with spectacular panoramic views and heights to the River reaching 900 meters. A little busy part of this natural space is the area of Oseja de Sajambre which is accessed from Lion in address to Cangas de Onis. Always he has heard commenting to people that maybe the best landscapes are in this zone, but the proximity of beaches that have Cangas de Onis and the area of Potes, Cantabria, and the attraction they have for tourism, make that are most demanded by travellers of Picos de Europa.

Many of its mountains over 2500 meters of altitude and have some rocks which are very sought after by lovers of alpinism and in general, for all fans to the extreme sports and adventure sports. This is the case of the so-called Holy penalty Castilla well known in Spain thanks to the special love that the Leonese adventurer Jesus Calleja feels for this mountain. There are other things to consider for those who plan to visit this park and the variety of species that live in these mountains. The temperate climate of the areas of the Cantabrian Sea of Asturias and Cantabria and the cold climate of the area of Leon, made of Picos de Europa a varied place and end at the same time to promote the lives of hundreds of species, some of them unique such as the Cantabrian brown bear and the capercaillie. To get to the National Park by plane or by car you can do from Asturias, Cantabria and Leon. We have to take into account that it is a high altitude mountain and is why the roads that we see on any map they have many curves and you have to drive with caution and respecting the rules of movement of the protected space.
