Points of interest
Although the Peña Cabarga Natural Park has been a protected area since 1989 it unfortunately lost this protection in 2005 due to the lack of plans and regulations needed. Various administrations have blamed each other and as of the writing of this article the area lays in a type of limbo waiting for clarification of its status.

That said the area is still well worth a visit and there are fantastic views from the summit of Peña Cabarga, (also called Pico Llen) of Santander and its bay- Although it is accessible by car the footpath that runs the length of the slope is highly reccomended.
The area is also famous for the Cabárceno karst, a geological formation that is characterized by its attractive morphology and has a reddish color, the result of the dissolution of calcareous rocks.
Waiting for more news as to whether this area will regain its protection status.
