Pienzu (sierra del Sueve)

The peak Pienzu is the highest peak of Sierra del Sueve at North of Picos de Europa very near of the sea. It's only at 5km from the sea and it's a peak of more than 1,000m, a curiosity difficult to find all over the World and for this reason it's really a nice watchtower.

The peak is normally climbed from Mirador del Fito (597m) important pass of the road and it has one of the widest landscapes of Asturias with the full massif of Picos de Europa at South and the villages of the coast at North.

Getting There

The pass of Mirador del Fito is in the road AS 260 between Colunga and Arriondas.
