A great reserve

One of the most exceptional reserves in terms of nature and ethnography in the entire Principality of Asturias, with large forests, granaries and traditional architecture, sheepfolds and pastoral huts, meadows, gorges and a lot of water in the form of springs, streams, rivers and reservoirs. All of this offers fantastic excursions for the whole family and medium and high mountain routes for the most demanding explorers.

The Network Park is located located in the east-eastern mountain sector, covering the municipal terms of Caso and Sobrescobio.

The Redes Natural Park has held this environmental mention since 1996. A few years later, in 2001, it was awarded the no less prestigious recognition of Biosphere Reserve. Its impressive groves, its virgin nature, and the priceless manipulation of the environment by the men and women who inhabit it, well deserve an award as well as the administrative and material means to continue protecting a habitat of so many excellences. Its surface is 376,2 Km2. It is characterized for having an orography of medium and high mountain; dominated by limestone rock, the Atlantic forest, meadows and grasslands in the bottoms of the valleys. The minimum level of the Park is 400m. above sea level and the maximum is in the Picu Torres with 2.104 meters.

The mountainous and abrupt terrain explains that almost 80% of its surface is located above the 800 m. and more than 80% have more than the 30% slope. These characteristics ensure a natural environment barely modified by the hand of man, with beauty and natural resources almost intact.

To the charm of nature is added a rural universe of its own. The villages have a special shine and the Casina cows graze freely. One of the most ancient cheeses of the peninsula is made from their raw milk: Casin cheese -a dairy product that also has a Protected Designation of Origin.
