This is hardly a mountain we're standing on up here in northern Spain. Compared to the snow-capped Picos de Europa visible to the southwest, which tower over 2,600 metres, this green mound in the Sierra de Arnero is barely a geological speed bump.
In fact, at a mere 540 metres, this hill is as tiny as Toronto's CN Tower and as such, doesn't even warrant a name in this lofty landscape.
Still, it's worth taking a trip up this no-name mountain, which rises above the village of Rábago, some 60 kilometres southwest of Santander, the capital of Cantabria. The views are spectacular, but the really remarkable attraction is hidden underfoot.
