Spain’s Royal family go hiking to celebrate 100 years of the Picos de Europa National Park

AS part of celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Picos de Europa National Park in northern Spain, the Spanish Royal family went for a hike in the beautiful surroundings of Enol lake.
The lake is in the Cantabrian mountains of Asturias, a rugged and stunning region that lines the northern coast, close to Santander.
It was also the first official trip that 12-year-old Leonor, Princess of Asturias, was making as heir to the Spanish throne.
She was joined by her parents King Felipe and Queen Letizia, and her 11-year-old younger sister Infanta Sofia.
The Picos de Europa was the first national park in Spain and is known for its rocky trails and dramatic scenery.
The park has a rich wildlife including bears, wolves and deer, and was awarded the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation in 2002.
