  • The Cuera Range Protected Landscape, in eastern Asturias, embraces the boroughs of Cabrales, Llanes, Peñamellera Alta, Peñamellera Baja and Ribadedeva.

  • Plant life

    In this privileged location, from which you can admire the breath-taking views of the Picos de Europa, the forest vegetation consists basically of beech, oak and holm oak.

    The limestone areas are mainly populated by thorny broom and some heather, while in areas with a siliceous substrate, i.e., on the lower levels of both slopes, moorland predominates.


    Noteworthy among the wildlife found here are foxes, martens and wildcats, in addition to abundant deer and wild boar.

    Golden eagles, vultures, Egyptian vultures and other large birds of prey can likewise be seen soaring overhead. Wallcreepers and red rockers can also be spotted here.

    There are more than 20 species of amphibians and reptiles, some of them endemic to the Iberian Peninsula, enjoying different degrees of conservation and abundance.

A coastal mountain range in a privileged location in eastern Asturias forming the Cuera Range Protected Landscape.

It comprises a limestone ridge running parallel to the coast, constituting a clear example of a coastal mountain range in which typical mountain conditions are modified by the proximity of the sea.

Outstanding among its extraordinary beauty is the Mazucu landscape and its highest point, Turbina Peak, at 1,315 metres, from where you can admire the breath-taking beauty of the Picos de Europa.
