All about the trip
On this tour, you will visit the famous Caves of “El Castillo” and “Las Monedas”, both World Heritage Sites by UNESCO since 2008 for their cave paintings.
The paintings in the El Castillo Cave are considered among the oldest preserved in the world. If you like rock art, this is a mandatory visit if you come to Cantabria as you will visit an authentic cave with paintings from the Paleolithic. You will be surprised by the legacy that our ancestors left us thousands of years ago.
Our next stop will be to take a walk through the small village of Puente Viesgo and enjoy the views over the Pas river. We will also take the opportunity to eat in the area at a local restaurant.Then we will continue our tour doing a scenic drive around the Pasiego Valleys crossing valleys, rivers, and mountains until we reach the Mountain Pass of Estacas de Trueba. The landscape on our way is spectacular and will not leave you indifferent. This route will culminate when you reach the waterfall that forms the source of the Yera River. Afterward, we will go to Vega de Pas, a small town between the mountains and known for being one of the real pasiego villages. There we will stop to visit the Ethnographic Museum of the Tres Villas Pasiegas. A visit to this museum is essential to understand how the Pasiegos used to live.What Wikipedia Says
