The walk starts from Lake Ercina in the heart of the Picos de Europa mountain range, and heads up to the top of La Reblagas and then on to the beautiful Bricial Majada. A Majada is a high mountain meadow, where horses, sheep or other animals are put out to pasture during the mild summer months. The route then continues towards the Vega de Enol Majada, crossing a beautiful beech forest, where we will stop to eat with spectacular views of “Las Peñas Santas”. The route continues until Lake Enol. In the afternoon, we will do a stop in Covadonga to visit the church and the “Saint Cave”, where we can see the Virgin of Covadonga. Back to Llanes
