Cantabrian cuisine in the Picos de Europa Mountains
The cuisine of the Liébana region is strong, as is typical of mountain areas. At the Parador, you can enjoy traditional Cantabrian gastronomy with restorative home-cooked dishes such as the popular cocido lebaniego (local stew), its famous cheeses and renowned veal and lamb, without neglecting the fresh fish from the Cantabrian Sea.

In the heart of the Picos de Europa
The perfect destination for lovers of rural tourism, adventure tourism and nature. Here you can go hiking on trails such as the one that leads to the Álica lookout point or the route along Horcados Rojos, an impressive vertical wall almost 300 metres high that lies on the way up to the Cabaña Verónica hut.
You’ll find small fairy-tale mountain villages close to the Parador. Mogrovejo, just over 15 minutes away by car, is a beautiful rural village declared a Historical Site which retains the charm of passing time in buildings such as a late 12th-century tower or the Monastery of Santo Toribio. Don't miss a visit to Potes, the capital of the Liébana region, and its Torre del Infantado and the charming Old Quarter.
For the adventurous, canoeing down a river, descending a ravine, rafting, descending a rappel rope, climbing the Naranjo de Bulnes or snowshoeing through a snowy landscape are all activities that are within your reach here. Go on an adventure!
