Baró en el Valle de Camañeño

Baró, in the Camaleño valley


How to get there:

You can get to Valdebaró via two roads: the N-621, from León, that goes through the Saint Glorio mountain pass, and the C-627, that enters the province of Palencia through the Piedrasluengas mountain pass, and again the N-627 from Unquera, crossing the extraordinary defile of the Hermida.

Located in a privileged site, only 5 km away from Potes (Cantabria, Spain) and at the bottom of the Europe Peaks, you can get to Baró by the road from Potes to the funicular railway of Fuente Dé. The traveller will enjoy, in the middle of the nature, the peace and beauty of its landscapes, an exceptional climate, being able to practise mountaineering, cyclotourism, etc., to study its extremely diverse flora and fauna, and to discover a real paradise for painting and photography fans.

You will be able to know its traditions and history, in which stand out the monastery of Saint Toribio of Liébana (13th Century), the Mozarabic church of Lebeña and the Romanesque church of Piasca, as well as its hermitages, its manorial large houses, its medieval towers and bridges (Potes, Mogrovejo, etc.).


Picos de EuropaMountaineers and walkers paradise:

Liébana is a paradise for mountaineers and walkers. There are many tracks that cross the four valleys that constitute the district, and some of the most spectacular ones are in the Camaleño valley. From Baró you can climb to the Viorna, Jano Peak and Saint Toribio. Ask us about other possible journeys.


La calzada romana de Baró:The Roman road in Baró:

Past the Saint Roque Hermitage, a transverse stone indicates the existence of a notable section of Roman road. The unrefined paving, with big stones and frequent tie beams, authenticate this millenary path. Its general condition is good, although it has logically suffered from the passing of time and crossing cattle, that has contributed to its damage. As we climb through it we will find the stone walls that fence it on both sides.

Going up some hundred meters, towards the Jano Peak, we will find a Celtic fortified defense: it is a rough circular construction with big stones, possibily used as dwelling or food warehouse.
