We popped in here while staying in Potes after seeing the reviews. Although a dated 1500's building on the outside it is a modern delight on the inside! There are great views to be had from the rooftop over the quaint town, and several Exhibitions available on the lower levels.
My only criticism would be that information is mostly in Spanish and no other language - but you can still get the idea as to what you are looking at and its historical relevance.

Stopped by on the off chance it was open and glad we did. . Managed to get a tour of the winery and a tasting session at the end. Delicious and interesting!! Bought some delicious marmalade laced with local alcohol and some local coffee spirit. Also we were given free bottle if wine on leaving. . Thank you!!

The church of Santa María de Lebeña is in the way between Potes and the coast in the Desfiladero de la Hermida, an amazing location and a thrilling driving. The church has some interesting Mozarabic elements in its construction providing a hint of the mix of styles and cultures that populated Spain during the Reconquista.

Por el valle que une el desfiladero de la Hermida con Puntenansa puedes disfrutar de miradores y 2 torres una de ellas en el pueblo o barrio de Linares y otra a pocos kilómetros de Puntenansa como esta la Torre de Obeso que se ve desde la carretera, es una torre bien cuidada creo que se puede visitar. Torre tipo fortificación que se usaban en los valles de Cantabria para controlarlos.

This attraction was recommended by our hotel, Casa de las Chimeneas in Tudes and we loved it. There was only one other couple there when we arrived and the owner, who was also the tour guide, only speaks passable English, but there is a short write-up in English that's helpful. Luckily, the other couple on the tour were locals and spoke excellent English so they gave us a lot of translation from the guide.
The inside is a preserved home of an upper class family, mainly women. The furnishings and belongings are original and it was easy to imagine what life was like for them on a daily basis. The kitchen and pantry were the highlights for me. Every kitchen tool is there and it's perfectly preserved. In fact, the pantry is bigger than the kitchen because there was so much food preparation going on from the food that was grown on the grounds. At the end of the tour, you also see the wine and butchering room. You see the sewing room stuffed with original clothing from the era. And, in the attic are children's school materials and toys, as well as local traditional clothing. You see every room in the house including sitting room, bedrooms, dining room, etc.
We loved it.

We did the Via Ferrata La Hermida with Oscar in late March, and loved every minute! After emailing various companies Oscar gave the most professional and prompt response, and answered every question of mine over the next month. Our group of 4 loved the VF La Hermida, even though 2 are rock climbers (they were never bored) and 2 people afraid of heights (they made it over the Tibetan bridge and scarier parts with Oscar's encouragement). We 100% recommend doing this route with a guide, because he had extra equipment for the Bridges and also the way (especially back down) is not very clear. Thanks Oscar!!

El lugar está rodeado de huertos frutales, río y naturaleza. El entorno y la arquitectura del lugar es idílico. Vale la pena andar sin prisa por las callezuelas que lo rodean. Eso sí, mucho cuidado con el coche, porque la salida del pueblo es la misma que la entrada, debiéndose aparcar tan pronto donde se pueda, porque si no se llega a un camino sin salida y no se puede dar la vuelta.

Fantastic 2hr trip through the beautiful countryside of the Picos. Although we had little experience, the horses were great and the professional staff gave us lots of advice and directions during the trek. My girls aged 11 and 12 loved it. The path we went along wasn't for the faint-hearted and it was very steep in places but exhilarating! We paid €75 for the 3 of us for the 2hrs which I thought was good value.

Santa Maria la Real de PIASCAes un monasterio ,duplice ,(monjes y monjas) ,perteneciente a la Orden Benedictina y del que tenemos noticia desde el siglo x con la mención de la abadesa Aylo seguramente miembro de la familia reinante,de ahí el nombre de Real.
El monasterio ya existía en el siglo x aunque la iglesia de factura románica,puede haber sido construida sobre una anterior .Es de Cruz. latina ,con crucero y absides.La nave central destaca por su altura,sobre pilastras.
Destaca su impresionante colección de escultura,que cubre la fachada oeste,con magnífica portada sobre la cual está el grupo escultora o con la Virgen y El Niño acompañada a ambos lados por San Pedro con las llaves y San Pablo ,Apóstol de los Gentiles.Todo el conjunto conserva restos de policromia.
La puerta sur o del "Cuerno",es igualmente otra joya así como los absides ,ventanas ,donde encontramos el estilo mozárabe,las saeteras románicas. y las góticas más posteriores .
En el interior,destacarlos grupos en madera policromada y dorada,como La Piedad y la Coronación de la Virgen,del siglo XVI y pertenecientes a la escuela flamenca.

Sport and adventure. All kinds of activities to have an unforgettable day surrounded by the nature of the Picos de Europa (canyoning, vias ferratas, snowshoeing, etc.)
A fantastic 3 hours spent in the company of professional, friendly and knowledgable guides. Canyoning takes place in one of the streams that runs down to the Deva river. Lots of slides, abseiling and finishing off with a 7m plunge. Suitable for all ages (5-50) and everything is optional (ie, you don't have to do the jump at the end!). Kids loved it, as did the adults. It's a beautiful part of the world and you get to see it from a completely different viewpoint.
