We will depart from Santander at 9:00 towards the Monastery of Santo Toribio, one of the four holy places of Christianity. The importance of this monastery is because it houses the Lignum Crucis, which is the largest piece of wood from the Cross of Jesus that is preserved. Here we will make a short stop for you to visit the Monastery and see the Lignum Crucis. We will also take the opportunity to approach the viewpoint of the hermitage of San Miguel, which is located near the Monastery and from where you can enjoy beautiful views over Picos.
Our next stop will be in Fuente Dé, where you will enjoy some free time to get to know the area or take the cable car up to the upper station if you wish. Despite the tickets are not included, we will take care of their booking if you want to take it (to be paid to the guide on the day of the excursion). The cable car ride will only take 4 minutes and will take you to a height of 1,823m above sea level. There you can enjoy stunning views and explore the closest surroundings of the station.
At lunch-time we will arrive in Potes, the capital of Liébana and considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Highlights of this town are its cobbled streets, its bridges, and its medieval Tower, which is called Torre del Infantado. We will enjoy a nice walk along the riverside and some free time to eat and do some shopping before leaving back for Santander.
**Cable car ticket is optional- the company will buy the tickets in advance. Tickets are paid to the guide on the day of the tour.
