All about the trip
We will leave from Santander towards Fuente Dé at 8:30 where we will arrive around 10:00. We will take the cable car in Fuente Dé to go up to the upper station of the cable car. It will only take 4 minutes to be at a height of 1823m above sea level. The breathtaking views from this place are guaranteed. We will spend about 1 hour there to take photos of the place and to explore the closest surroundings of the station.
We will make a quick stop to visit the Monastery of Santo Toribio. This is one of the four Holy places in the world that offer the Jubilee in Perpetuum. The importance of this monastery is due to the fact that it houses the Lignum Crucis, which is the largest piece of wood of the Cross of Jesus that is preserved.
Our next stop will be in the village of Potes, where we will walk through the streets and take a break for lunch. We will enjoy a "cocido lebaniego", this is the popular main dish. After lunch, we will enjoy some free time to visit the village which is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.
Our next stop will be in Rionansa to visit the Soplao Cave, this is considered as one of the most important caves in Europe for its geological value and speleothem formations. The guided visit will take 1 hour and it is only available in Spanish. Finally, we will start our trip back to Santander.What Wikipedia Says
