The remarkable, little-known Cantabrian Mountains extend along the Atlantic coast of northern Spain for nearly 500 kilometers from the east Pyrenees to Galicia. The mountains form a barrier between the cool, moist part of Spain, known as Espana Verde or “green Spain”, and the arid central plateau. The mountains are home to a huge variety of wildlife, including chamois and red deer, wolves, brown bears, and wildcats. In forests, meadows, and cliffs, life plays out its dramas far away from civilization.
