From Alto de Caballar, on clear days, you can see the Bay of Santander to the north, and the mountains of Campoo to the south. Also on the north side you can admire a magnificent oak tree. The bottom of the Valley of Villafufre, on the other hand, is dominated by eucalyptals and pine forests destined for logging that alternate with grasslands and stains of native forest
- Civil architecture: between the Modern Age stately residencies stands out the monumental House of Díez de Velasco, from 17th century, located in Bustillo, and the House of Domingo Herrera. Also the Portalada del Obispo should be mentioned, thought of as the entrance to a noble house in Vega, in 18th century.
