Guidebooks - Cicerone - Walks and Climbs in the Picos De Europa
By Robin Walker
The guidebook has walks and climbs in the Picos de Europa, a limestone range to the north of the central section of the Cordillera Cantabrica, on the northern Atlantic shore of Spain, Europe. Routes divided into two main groups: valley-based and mountain, of all grades. With background information such as geology, flora, fauna and history.
The Picos de Europa, Spain’s premier National Park and a UNESCO Man and the Biosphere designated area, are unique among Europe's mountains: geologically, for being the largest single mass of mountain limestone in the continent; geographically, for being the only true maritime range Europe possesses; and sociologically, for retaining even to this day a large part of the culture that has for centuries been the basis of life in the towns and villages dotted around the area.
