Potes Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 150 photos

Potes is the capital of the Liebana region and is the gateway to the Picos de Europa via the Fuente De cable car. A superb medieval town, Potes suffered during the civil war but still retains most of the old quarter, the Barrio Viejo. Indeed looking at the main photo, one wonders how the houses are still standing.
In summer it can be quite crowded as people flock in to participate in the many sports available from the many outfitters in town. Thr cable-car to Fuente De is only 23 kms from here.

    Lovely little page with brilliant photos of Potes here. We will be in the area at the beginning of May. Do you by chance know if there is a bus serving the route from Potes to Fuente De?

      Thanks for the visit and nice comments Holger. I've been looking for buses but the only bus I can find only runs in July/August. I had my own vehicle when I was there.
