Madrid/Barcelona – San Sebastián – Bilbao – Santander – Oviedo/Gijón – León – Santiago/Madrid
There exists another Spain to the north, almost a thousand kilometers from the Mediterranean. A Spain that has remained aloof, spiritually and geographically from what was happening to the south and develope a culture that followed its own unique paths. This other Spain there is luxuriant woods, cut by trout-filled rivers, and crossed by high mountains that are still sanctuary for the brown bear and Iberian wolf.
Her cities date back thousands of years and resisted the Romans and Arabs. Some are beautifully refined like San Sebastian, others are magical and charged with mysticism like Santiago de Compostela. In the case of Altamiras, close to Santander, cave paintings were first discovered, the first glorious page in hispanic art. Not far away, was founded in 718, the Asturias Kingdom, from which was iniciated the 8th century reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula from the Moors.
This is a Spain apart, little known by foreing travellers who rarely dare to leave the more usual destinations to the south, but which receives the visitor who likes to explorer lesser known trails with open arms.
