The Forest of Oma has various charms. One of them is the surroundings: after going up 2.8 kilometers from the neighborhood of Bazondo in Kortezubi, you can see the painted trees of the Forest of Oma. They were painted by Agustín Ibarrola. Depending on where you stand you can see different interesting and colorful paintings. Another charm is the nature of the area: oaks, chestnuts, pine trees, eucalyptus and many other tree varieties.
You can find in the same area the caves of Santimamiñe. There, after a symbolic pay in the entrance, you can enjoy some interesting caves as well as a virtual 3D visit that simulates a real walk along the deeper parts of the caves.
Elche is well-known among travelers for two main reasons: The Lady of Elche and the Palmeral.
The Palmeral (palm grove), aside from having been declared a World Heritage Site, is a unique place. You don’t even realize it until you’re inside and surrounded by endless palm trees. When you arrive for the first time, you don’t know what to think. But if you go to a high point and take in the whole view, you realize that it’s a real oasis. Everything suddenly makes sense and the impression is amazing. The palm grove is worth the visit to Elche alone. It’s a really unique place in Spain.
This is one of the secret corners of this coastal city. A few kilometres from the centre, we found this wonderful mountain, full of trails along the cliffs, and in the woods. It's the perfect place to go with children, collecting leaves, pine cones, or chestnuts. The cliff path is quite narrow, so be careful, but the views are beautiful. There is a playground, and also picnic tables. It's a popular weekend hangout.
Mechón de la Xana is a small waterfall that is behind the mill in the mountains of Faedo (Cudillero - Asturias). The scenery is wonderful - the forest, the pretty mill, the small waterfall and the lake .... amazing! It should only take around half an hour, but it will take longer because the landscape surprises you at every turn and the shutter of your camera will not stop clicking. The path that leads to the Xana passes through a native Asturian forest with chestnut, pine, beech and oak trees. It's a beautiful route that ends when you begin to hear the sound of water and glimpse the mill. Just behind is the waterfall and my photos show the wonderful landscape around here. Here's a video of the entire route. There are not many signs so it is quite difficult to find your way. For any questions regarding this route: Info@casaviejadelsastre.Com
