  • A basilica and a sanctuary immersed in the Woods, the one with its grandeur to remember a place of worship where Christians won the Moors, beginning the reconquista, the other, small and carved into the rock, is one of the most famous Marian sanctuaries of North and venue de la Santina. Under the sanctuary, a waterfall and fountain, which is tied up a legend for single girls. In and around this complex there are the Lakes of covadonga, easily accessible
