What to expect

You will leave Santander towards Fuente Dé at 8:00am. Arriving around 10.00am you will take the cable car in Fuente Dé to go up to the upper station of the cable car (it will only take you 4 minutes to reach a height of 1,823m above sea level). The breathtaking views from this place are simply breathtaking. You will spend there about 1 hour to take photos of the place and to explore the closest surroundings of the station.

Afterward, you will go to Potes. But before you will make a small stop to visit the Monastery of Santo Toribio. This is one of the four Holy places in the world that offer the Jubilee in Perpetuum. The importance of this monastery is due to the fact that it houses the Lignum Crucis, which is the largest piece of wood of the Cross of Jesus. You will then arrive to the village of Potes, where we will walk through its streets and where we will take a break for lunch. The lunch will be a "cocido lebaniego", this is a typical dish of the region (a chickpeas stew). Potes is the capital of Liébana and is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.

After lunch, you will have some time before heading back to Santander. Finally, you will stop at the Soplao Cave, which is considered to be unique for the quality and quantity of its geological formations (speleothems). The visit to the cave is guided (only in Spanish) and will take 1 hour. After this last visit, you will go back to Santander.
