Hoja  Hayedo de las Ilces...

This tour starts and ends in Espinama can combine the beauty of the people of the upper valley of Camalenyo with magnificent forests of beech and oak trees that are preserved so well in their environment. After browsing among the careful architecture of Espinama and ask the route enters the track towards Pierga Cosgaya, which runs along the right bank of the river Deva at the foot of the lush forests that descend from the heights of Coriscao by Pierga valleys and Peñalba. No doubt this is one of the best preserved areas around the Picos de Europa, where some of the few bears in the Cantabrian Mountains, among many elusive species take refuge. The circuit is completed through the small town of Las Ilces, returning along the side exposed to sunshine, where forest species change, but the dense forest remains.

The Picos de Europais a limestone formation extends Asturias, Cantabria and Leon, and it highlights their heights, often above 2,500 meters, so they are near the Bay of Biscay, as in its northernmost point only 15 kilometers distance themselves the sea.

Geographically the Picos de Europa are in the line of the Cantabrian Mountains, although they are considered a separate unit of the latter for his recent training. They occupy a total area of ??64,660 hectares in the three provinces.

The Picos de Europa are divided into three massifs: the western mountains or Cornión, Massif Central or Urrieles, and the Eastern Massif or Andara. The highest peaks are found in the mountains of Urrieles, which happens to be the most rugged of the three, for fourteen of its peaks exceed 2,600 m altitude, with Cerredo Tower, 2,650 m, and roof of the mountains and third highest in the Iberian Peninsula,after Sierra Nevada and the Pyrenees. Another mountain is part of this massif is the Naranjo de Bulnes or Picu Urriellu of great historical importance in the Spanish mountaineering. It was first conquered in 1905 by Pedro Pidal, Marquis of Villaviciosa.

In the western mountains or Cornión, named for the shape of horn featuring his silhouette being sighted from the west, stands the Holy Rock, which at 2596 meters above sea level exceeds 110 to the next summit of the mountain The Tower of Santa Maria or Santa Enol Tower. For these two mountains, the Holy and the Holy Rock Tower, this mountain is also known as the Holy Rocks.

The Eastern Massif, also called Andara to be in it the circus of the same name, is the most modest of the three, both in height (the roof, Lechugales Morra, reaching 2,444 m above sea level) and verticalities
