The Cares Gorge, Asturias

4.7
#10 of 12 in Nature in Asturias
Explore what's considered one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Spain at The Cares Gorge, a narrow path through the Cantabrian Mountains surrounded by vegetation and cliffs. The pathway leads through tunnels, over footbridges, and along the river. Despite its length, the hike's mostly flat terrain makes it fairly easy. Be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes and take plenty of water. If you can, build in time to stop at one of the mountain villages and try the local food. A couple local favorites include fabada--sausage and bean casserole--and the pote asturiano, the regional stew.
