Welcome to “Picos de Europa” National Park. Its mountainous landscape leaves no doubt that – with apologies to the Pyrenees – features Spain’s most stunning topography.
The hundreds of hiking trails throughout Picos de Europa are well marked; many of them feel scarcely used, plunging you into a remoteness that helps you reconnect with nature.
At the heart of the mountains and only during summer, shepherds produce one of the best cheeses in the world, “Gamoneu”. A cheese made with three types of milk (goat, sheep and cow) aged in natural caves for months. All the animals roam freely during the summer months in evergreen pastures eating anything but grass. This is what makes “Gamoneu” so special.
Enjoy a Picnic in style with a stunning view surrounded by mountains where you will taste “Gamoneu”, Iberico Ham and local specialities paired with a good wine.
The cherry on the cake for a full day of emotions will be a night in at 16th-century palace, which has been lovingly converted into a luxury hotel. Its opulent interiors and beautiful antiques create a relaxing atmosphere — the perfect way to unwind while you enjoy spectacular views over the mountains of this natural paradise in Northern Spain.
