Liébana, a nature paradise

Decoration image

Liébana, in the west of Cantabria, and right in the heart of the Picos de Europa, is a unique area populated by warm-hearted people who welcome visitors with outstretched arms. It is not by chance that we are here: our climate and the incomparable landscape make those who visit us want to return.

What makes us different? Apart from our idiosyncratic nature, we have a wonderful geographical location. We are only an hour and a quarter from Santander, the capital of the region, something over 60 kilometres from Llanes, and no more than 50 kilometres from San Vicente de la Barquera and the spectacular Cantabrian coast

Finally, the most magnificent mountains, green meadows covering their foothills, only a stunning 40 kilometres journey from the sea.

In 2006, Liebana is celebrating a Jubilee Year. Twelve months during which thousands of pilgrims, reliving a centuries-old tradition, will go to Santo Toribio de Liébana Monastry to have their sins pardonned in one of the most important social, cultural and religious events in the district and in the whole of the region of Cantabria.

Under the slogan « Cantabria 2006: Liebana, Jubilee Land » " a huge number of events will take place that will convert Liebana into a major attraction for tourists and visitors. Conferences, exhibitions, classical and popular music concerts, scientific meetings, theatrical events... will make up the cultural and entertainment programme which the area offers the visitor.

You will find this the perfect place for any number of sports.

You can also do other types of leisure and sports activities in the area, like mountain and road biking. Or picking wild mushrooms, strawberries and cherries... especially in spring and autumn. Other attractions include a wide variety of horse riding routes, rafting, hang-gliding, boating, canoeing... or simply discover the charm of the castles and hermitages hidden in Liébana.
