Peña Cabarga, Lierganes

Peña Cabarga Nature Reserve


A surprising landscape

In the Reserve, sharp points, escarpments, vertical faces and the labyrinth of 'callejones'. abound

The extraction of iron in the clay of this karst landscape has been traced back to Roman times.This, combined with the erosive action of the water and wind, has produced a landscape of unique beauty.Not only the curious formations, but also the contrast of colours (the red of the clay and green of the vegetation) surprise the visitor.
