Cantabria is the place where I live with my husband in a solitary cabin in the mountains.

Cantabria belongs to “Green Spain”, the name given to the strip of land between the Cantabrian Sea and the Cantabrian Mountains in northern Spain. It is called green because it has particularly lush vegetation, due to a wet and moderate oceanic climate.

Beach of Santoña

Cantabria is the richest region in the world in archaeological sites from the Upper Paleolithic period, although the first signs of human occupation date from Lower Paleolithic. The most significant cave painting site is the cave of Altamira, dated from about 16,000 to 9,000 BC and declared, with nine other Cantabrian caves, World Heritage Sites by Unesco.

Paintings in the Cave of Altamira

There is a long long barrier made up of abruptly rising mountains parallel to the sea, which are part of the Cantabrian Mountains. The mountains are mostly made of limestone with karst topography, and occupy most of Cantabria’s area. They form deep valleys oriented north-south.


The source of the Asón river

The torrential rivers are short, fast flowing and of great eroding power, so the slopes are steep. The valleys define different natural regions, delimited physically by the intervening mountain ranges: Liébana, Saja-Nansa, Besaya, Pas-Pisueña, Miera, Asón-Gándara, Campoo.


Picos de Europa

Its most unknown area is the most beautiful one: the Valleys Pasiegos, the secret of Cantabria, where pasiegos still live as in the old times in stone cabins, taking care of cows and enduring a very difficult life and hard conditions.
The pics in this calendar belong to this area.

Hope you enjoy it!
