Lagos Covadonga / Covadonga Lakes, Spain

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.

I did notice that there were several buses going that way if one was carless!Map of the Picos de Europa *Jessica provided our great route info, and has since opened a Bakery Café in Santiago de Compostela called Lusco & Fusco.
