The Picos De Europa National Park sits in the North of Spain close to the coastal port town of Sandanter. They extend for approx 20Km and are part of the Cantabrian Mountains and situated in the regions of Asturias, Cantabria and Castile and León.

The town itself although quite small has plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars. The area is also known for its great variety of local cheeses and its own unique way of drinking its local cider.
