What a beautiful ride through a narrow and windy road (especially in a bus) with granite walls rising straight up. Would have been great to have more turnouts so you could enjoy and take photos.

A beautiful treasure in northern Spain. We drove through them, enjoyed Covadonga and a delicious pot of Fabada. There are breathtaking views in every direction.
