The ancient town of Potes lies on the eastern side of the Picos de Europa, in northern Spain.
This is the view from the bandstand in the town centre.
The square tower behind the blue sunshades is the Torre del Infantado, a typical tower-manor of the 15th century and the most symbolic building of Potes, but now used as the town hall.
From Potes you can enter the Picos, Spain's first national park, at Fuente Dé about 25 kms away,
where a short cable car will take you up into the peaks.
