Braña de La Pornacal (Pornacal grasslands)

La Corte > Setting > Braña de La Pornacal

One of the Asturian mountains’ best-kept secrets is an hour’s walk from the hotel: Braña de la Pornacal (the Pornacal grasslands), nominated by the Repsol Guide as one of the Best Spots in Spain in 2014. This is the largest and best preserved of Somiedo’s mountain grasslands, where the nomadic cowherds’ ancient traditions still survive in a uniquely beautiful setting on the right bank of the source of the River Pigüeña, 1170 metres above sea level and visitable almost all year round.

*This is an area of enormous ecological value: a natural park, a biosphere reserve and home to the highest population of brown bears in Spain. Please respect the environment: do not leave litter or wander off the marked routes. There are facilities for leaving litter of all types at our hotel and we can inform you of the regulations.
