Included here are the highest peaks of the Picos (14 above 2,600m), the area around the cable car at Fuente De and the most famous mountain, Urriello or Naranjo de Bulnes. Just on the map is the Cares gorge.
Adrados' 1:25 000 map of the Western Massif (El Cornión) of the Picos de Europa is in the same format with a pictorial 3-D image and index of peaks on one side and the detailed map on the other.
