Detailed Product Description

2003. Color photos, maps. Though relatively modest in terms of altitude and extent, the Picos are, in fact, unique among Europe's mountains in a number of ways: geologically, for being the largest single mass of mountain limestone in the continent; geographically, for being the only true maritime range Europe possesses; and sociologically, for retaining even to this day a large part of the culture that has for centuries been the basis of life in the towns and villages dotted around the area.

The first section of the book deals with background information such as geology, flora, fauna and history; and the second half describes the routes, which have been divided into two main groups (valley based routes and mountain routes), and provides sections on multi-day tours and winter mountaineering.
