Potes and the Picos de Europa

Impressive scenery.

Some say that these mountains were the first landmark sighted by sailors reaching the Iberian Peninsula via the Cantabrian Sea. They now form part of a national park that attracts visitors from all over the world. Fancy discovering it from above? Just take the famous Fuente Dé cable car in the Liébana Valley, about 130 kilometres from Santander. Then go to Potes, the main city in the Liébana region. This charming town has delicious cuisine. If you fancy trying a typical dish, ask for the local stew ('cocido lebaniego'). And don't forget to visit Santo Toribio de Liébana. This monastery houses a very valuable relic for Christianity: the largest known fragment of the cross of Jesus of Nazareth.
