PotesAt the heart of the Valle de Liebana, Picos de Europa, lies medieval Potes which, to this day, serves as the cultural and commercial centre for the area. The town lies at the crossroads of the three natural routes in and out of the valley; to the coast, to Leon and to Palencia and as such is steeped in history, of particular interest being nearby Santo Toribio de Liebana which is said to house a piece of the holy cross. The main attraction for most is the fantastic scenery and the walking in this unspoilt rural valley which at times appears lost in time.
