Spacious, quiet area next to the entrance of the national park
Beautiful natural park, (Unesco listed) ‘man made' during the Roman Empire. The original mountain range was drilled with galleries and flooded searching for gold nuggets. The information desk at the park entrance is helpful and provides you with a good walking/biking map of the area. No entrance fee to be paid for the park. It is dotted with magnificent old chestnut trees, no picking allowed whilst they are privately owned!
The Mirador de Orellan provides a great panorama of the complete area. You can walk there or it is possible to drive up to about 1,5km from the lookout point. Vans smaller than 6m are allowed at the higher parking area.
Camper parking area next to cemetery is located at 5 min walking from the information desk, 10 minutes to Las Medusas pueblo. An alternative overnight parking area is found near Lake Carucedo at the Casa del Parque, 3km down from the village.
