The scenery is breathtaking with many spectacular walking trails. The many villages within the park contain restaurants serving local foods. Local cider is very popular. Staying in the smaller villages is like taking a step back into the past with cows walking down the narrow...More

Hiking is a thing you should do while you visit them. There are many routes that you can download before going, the easiest way is to catch the Bulnes funicular in Poncebos or "El cable" in Fuente De. Remember to take enough water with you...More
