In the Picos de Europa is one of my all-time favorite places ever, Covadonga […] the lakes, which are crystal blue, placid, and surrounded by absolutely picturesque green hills…
…my description is not doing it justice. Google “Lagos Covadonga” and you’ll see. Definitely worth a visit, and in October there shouldn’t be many tourists.” (Jessica*)
After a stop at the Covadonga Sanctuary we carried on up the narrow winding roads headed for the lakes.
Al thought “the road would be perfect for a motorcycle” and low and behold…
…it was perfect — for a motorcycle commercial!
At the top a sign indicates various walking routes.
Cows and horses graze the land around the lake. There’s an old mine to explore.

We had a rental car for our ‘backroads of Spain’ tour so we drove from Canga de Onis up to Covadonga. I did notice that there were several buses going that way if one was carless! *Jessica provided our great route info, and has since opened a Bakery Café in Santiago de Compostela called Lusco & Fusco. You can find her on Facebook at Lusco Fusco Bakery Café.
