Potes is the geographical center of the region and where you can find most of the services and shops. During the Civil War, there was a great fire that burned part of the town, but a nice old town is still preserved and transports us to another time. There are important historical buildings such as the Torre del Infantado and good restaurants where you can taste typical products. Because of its narrow and paved streets, its bridges over the river Deva and Quiviesa and surrounded by mountains and nature, Potes becomes a magical place.

In addition of large and impressive Picos de Europa, in the surroundings we find mountains like La Viorna, a very frequent place for people keen on paragliding, or the beautiful gorge of the Hermida with countless schools and climbing areas and with the famous hot springs located in front of the Balneario de la Hermida. Potes is a perfect place for all kinds of outdoor sports, losing ourselves in its narrow and magical streets or to enjoy a unique gastronomy.
