We can find here the highest peaks in Picos de Europa, and reach up to 2,648 metres. Picos de Europa is the first National Park in Spain and it consist of three important massifs that go by the names of the Eastern Massif or Andara, Central Massif or Urrielles and Western Massif or Cornión. The climate is characterized by humidity and constant rainfall, a fact that is determined by its proximity to the sea (barely 20 kilometres). The rivers are short, but contain copious amounts of water, due to the heavy rainfall, and the waters that come from the melting of snow in the peaks. The most notable rivers are the Deva, the Sella, the Nalon, the Navia and the Eo (the last two are only partially in Asturias).
