The Picos de Europa are a small but impressive range of karstic limestone mountains in the north of Spain just 20 kms from the Costa Cantábrica. Straddling three provinces - Cantabria, Asturias and León, they are split into three massifs - Western (El Cornión), Central (Los Urrielles) and Eastern (Andara), by the rivers Cares and Duje. Bordered by, in the east and south the valleys of Liébana and the river Deva, and in the west the river Sella, the Picos de Europa enjoy a temperate climate with the mountains on the Asturian side bearing the brunt of the prevailing, westerly weather fronts. The valleys of Liébana, lying on their eastern flank, find themselves in a natural rainshadow and enjoy a much drier climate than the coast.
