Get the dislike out of the way, the price could be cheaper. Now the likes
The attraction has a large parking area with picnic tables and is free of charge (to motorcycles at least). the cable car is nice and clean, and does look quite new. A quick journey up to the top platform with spectacular views across the picos.. the area at the top has some great views and paths through the hills that are not hard to walk on. I guess it could be cold on some days but this time it was warm enough to wear just T-shirt, but take a fleecy just in case. Some strange images can be seen in the rock face. I saw a baboon face (or as someone said, big bird from sesame street?) The ticket price is either return or single (you can walk back down to the car park) and you can stay up there for a long time. there is a gift shop and café at the top.

Be careful as you approach this area. There are horses and dogs roaming freely. There is a very large car park, cross the road to the ticket office and there is a waiting area with a café and toilets. Enter the cable car for an excellent trip to 1850m where there is another café and toilets. There is a walk to another café further up the mountain. The views are truly amazing with vultures flying overhead. There are lots of areas to explore and walk. Well worth the visit.

Although somewhat deep into the Picos de Europa, this is a worthwhile stop in order to reach the top of the Pedro Remona Mountain range. Great views and a very nice ride. Worth the trip.

We have seen other reviews mention no parking and no facilities etc - ignore them!
There is a big car park opposite, there is another car park where the ticket office is located and yet another car park at the hotel just around the corner. There is also a large cafe at the bottom and a small cafe at the top.

We visited during September and there were no queues at all but I have heard that there can be very long queues during July/August.

We were very lucky to visit on a clear day and we could see for miles in all directions across the many mountains in this area. It was spectacular and made you feel so small as you looked at the vastness of it all. One of those sights that stay with you for life.

I would still visit on a cloudy day especially is the clouds are low as you may be above the clouds when you are at the top. That must be a fantastic sight.

Got there 1000 just as it opened. No queue. Single ticket €9 each. Amazing views. We went to top and took circular path back down to car park (gruelling!!!).
