Sobrescopio is a small municipality of 69.43 km2 that forms part of the Redes Natural Park, one of the most valued natural spaces in the Principality of Asturuas and that has been declared a World Biosphere Reserve.
An area of water, woods, peaks and villages, the people (called coyanes) have lived mainly from agriculture and raising livestock.
The environmental and geographical conditions of Sobrescopio have made it a refuge for such tree species as beech, oak, chestnut, yews and birch that have blended in with the green pastures.
Animals such as the deer, chamois, roe deer and Cantabrian capercaillie form a part of the fauna in the Sobrescopio area, with the River Nalón and its tributaries being famous for its High Nalón Trout.
Travelling around these villages with their traditional architecture, walking through the naturally eroded limestone gorges or bird watching at the Rioseco reservoir are some of the attractions on offer in this beautiful municipality.
