Orography

Castilla y León is located at the north side of the Iberian Plateau. Its orography, diverse and varied, gives rise to a great variety of climates and landscapes: plain, mountain, valley, forest, etc.


All the region is surrounded by impressive mountain chains; at north, the Cordillera Cantábrica with Picos de Europa; Montes de León to the northwest; at east the Sistema Ibérico and at south the Community territory borders with the Sistema Central, surrounding our generours plains, only altered by the system of the Montes Torozos at the center.

With an average altitude over the sea level of 830 metres, our higher peaks are over 2,500 metres, being remarkable Torrecerredo at Picos de Europa with an altitude of 2,648 metres.
