Not as famous and well known as Picos de Europa, the Somiedo Natural Park (a 2h30m drive from the first) also has a magnificent mountain scenery, beautiful lakes and breathtaking natural beauty.
Probably the fact that it is less well known and not as trendy is what makes the asturian essence stronger and more noticeable in Somiedo, making it more genuine and true.
