Climb Description

This is the more scenic side of Mirador del Fito,. It is forested in places, but also opens up at times, giving pleasant views of the coast. The highlight though is the top of the climb - the Mirador del Fito itself.

The Mirador is a raised viewing platform which is known throughout the region for its scenery. To the north you will see the coastline of the Cantabrian sea, lined with quiet sandy beaches and rocky coves. To the south you will see the spectacular peaks of the Picos de Europa National Park, including the idiosyncratic summit of Narnajo del Bulnes.

Mirador del Fito from Loroñe has been used at times in the Vuelta a España often preceding a stage finish at Lagos de Covadonga. It has not led to decisive attacks from GC contenders, but has been the launching pad for ambitious riders looking to win the stage at Covadonga.

The climb is open throughout the year.
