Peña Vieja (2,613m) and Torre Blanca (2.617m)

Both highest peaks in Cantabria they are located in the Massif Central of Picos de Europa and can be seen from each other. Both are exceptional mountains located in a truly surprising enclave that does not leave you indifferent, both for the alpine environment in which they are found, and for the contrast with the nearby forests of the Liebana and Valdeon, which we can see from their respective summits. The views are lost both in the Cantabrian Mountains to the South, highlighting as not the Espigüete in the Fuentes Carrionas mountain range, as towards the rest of the orientations with the highest peaks of Picos de Europa spotlight.
