Mountains in Green Spain

Camino Lebaniego

Discover the little-known pilgrimage route, the Camino Lebaniego, which leads you from the Green Coast of Spain to Santo Toribio Monastery in the Picos mountains. Walk through fairytale-like mountain landscapes dotted with green valleys, lakes and tiny churches by day, and at night feast on delicious Cantabrian cuisine including grilled meat and wonderful cheeses. The culmination of this short pilgrimage is reaching the Santo Toribio Monastery, home to the largest surviving piece of the Lignum Crucis, the cross upon which Jesus Christ was crucified.
