The easternmost tip of Asturias, personified in Peñamellera Baja, surprises us with natural and cultural treasures. There are many villages that stand out for their Asturian village atmosphere and for the houses and palaces - medieval, Renaissance or Indian - that can be found here, such as Cimiano, Suarías, Merodio, Alevia, Narganes, Cerébanes or Abándames - the latter was the capital of the two Peñamelleras and still conserves the splendour and lordship of its rank with the largest number of palaces and emblazoned houses in the whole valley. Peñamellera Baja overlooks the Cares-Deva throughout its territory, with fishing preserves of singular beauty, such as El Tilo, Monejo, El Coyú..., and prehistoric caves such as La Loja. This is the main gateway to the Picos de Europa, with its wildest part in Cuñaba or San Esteban, with a forest, viewpoint and the title of Exemplary Village. The Cares-Deva, that sacred river, makes the Ribera - Para, Cerebánes and Cavandi - fertile, gives us the Sauceda de Buelles and makes Panes, capital of the council, an international reference for river salmon fishing. Panes also offers the traveller one of the most beautiful river paths in the whole of eastern Asturias.
From most of the villages in this municipality we can enjoy different and varied mountain routes. The most outstanding are those of the villages of San Esteban and Cuñaba through the Picos de Europa National Park.
After taking a look at the Bowling Museum, also in Panes, we will know all about this Asturian sport, and we will be able to enjoy contemplating San Juan de Ciliergo or the Old Bridge of Robriguero, without forgetting to taste the magnificent cheeses of Picos de Europa, whose contest is held in Panes every summer.
