Traveling "Desfiladero de la Hermida" in Cantabria, Spain

The “Desfiladero de la Hermida” is a narrow valley that was formed by the river Deva. It is located in Cantabria, Spain and is enclosed by high limestone walls, at some sections up to 600 meters high. The valley and road section (N-621) is about 21 km long, with lots of bends through an amazing landscape. It is in fact the longest canyon in Spain and got the name "La Hermida" from one of the very pretty villages that it passes through.
