The Picos de Europa have several characteristics that make them different than the other mountains in Spain. Probably what best defines them is their verticality. Because of this condition, there are many climbing routes in their three ranges, either as the highest peaks like Torre Cerredo or at the bottom of the valley, as in the case of Cueto Agero.

The alpine climbing allows us to reach impossible heights otherwise, to make us feel like if we were the only ones for a moment. After the effort the views are stunning and, if we stretch your arms, we can almost touch the sky.

Undoubtedly, the most classic ascent is climbing the Naranjo de Bulnes or Pico Urriellu (+info). This historic summit is amazing from its base.
