What a beautiful place this is, driving up the winding road avoiding the cows with their traditional bells meandering across in front of you and so worth the drive when you reach the top.....loved the view point with the markings to enable you to see where different places are located. Asturias is a truly stunning part of Spain.

We drove here from Ribadesella which is approximately 13 miles away and it took us about 30 minutes. The winding road up is obviously steep but is in good condition so it was quite safe and not a problem. The views are good from the start but just get better and better as you drive higher. When you arrive there are ample car parking spaces and then it is just a short walk up the path to the very top. Here there is an elevated stone staircase with a viewing platform on top. The views of the Picos de Europa mountains and in the other direction down to the sea are stunning. You need to visit on a clear day and wear a jacket as the temperature is definitely cooler due to the altitude. There is a souvenir shop and small bar adjacent to the car park area.

It's definitely worth the 11 kilometer drive up the hill for one of the most spectacular views in Spain. From the tower at the peak you can view a panorama of the Picos de Europa and on the other side you can see down to the beaches along the Costa Verde. Lovely distant views on a clear day.

Great drive up from Arriondas very winding road , only go on a clear day fantastic views when you get to the top.park in the car park and walk the short distance to the observation platform. You can see for miles all along the coast and the snow topped mountains inland certain times of year.
