On the last day of our stay at La Isla Camping, Potes, we rode up to Fuente De and took the cable-car up the hill. Understandably, it’s a real tourist attraction so there was a forty minute wait before our turn came. Again, not too much scribble from me, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
The sign at the bottom station gives a few,bare statistics.
Looking up at the top station far above.
The 20 seater cars look tiny against the massive cliffs.
On the way up, through the tinted windows of the Teleferico.
The further up you go, the more grand the spectacle.
At the top, looking back down at the bottom station.
Kinda like a moonscape.
Some horses meandered through a nearby gully searching out some of the very scarce grass.
The temperature was in the mid-thirties but there was still snow clinging on to some of the deeper clefts in the rocks.
‘Nice view from up here Jayney’.
Suddenly looks a bit flimsy to me.
On the way back down, the rock we were stood on looks all the more imposing.
The next day we left Potes and also left Spain. But whatever else we experience on this trip, the Teleferico at Fuente De will live long in our memories. Spain too will take some upstaging as one of the most enjoyable and exhilarating countries in Europe to visit.
