Lake Enol

One of the most famous and mythical corners in Asturias is located within the Picos de Europa National Park. In the heart of the oldest National Park in Spain, you will find an extraordinary place, which is steeped in legend: the Covadonga Lakes. The access to the lakes is a remarkable experience. The road that leads to the lakes starts at Covadonga with an average gradient of 7.3%, although the most demanding section is La Huesera, 7 kilometres from the top of the climb, with an average gradient of 15% during 800 meters!! 12.6 kilometers of twisting bends and curves which slowly reveal the marvellous natural landscape. Cows, horses and sheep graze calmly on the endless green pastures around the lakes. A majestic landscape with the impressive mountain peaks surrounding the glacial lakes Enol and Ercina.
