Second.

As a result of enlargement and correction of the quantification of the total surface area provided by the municipality of Peñamellera Baja the total area of the National Park of the Picos de Europa is set in 67.127 has 59 to 36 ca, belonging to the municipalities of Amieva, Cabrales, Cangas de Onís, Onís, Peñamellera Alta and Peñamellera Baja in the autonomous community of the Principality of Asturias; of Camaleño, Cillorigo de Liébana and Tresviso in the community autonomous of Cantabria; and of Oseja de Sajambre and Posada de Valdeón, in the autonomous community of Castile-Leon. Them limits geographical of the Park national of the peaks of Europe, thus expanded, are that appear cartographically in the annex III of this agreement.

EXHIBITION national parks in Spain make up a network coherent, homogeneous and representative of the natural systems of our country at the service of the conservation of its natural values and enjoyment by all citizens. They are declared by Act of the Cortes Generales, and though its further enlargement is covered with the character of a statement in itself, the legislator has established some exceptional circumstances where will empowers the national Government to proceed in that regard by agreement of the Council of Ministers, dramatically simplifying the procedure not to specify this is the participation of the Cortes Generales.

In accordance with article 11.2 of the law 30/2014, of 3 December, national parks, the Government, on the proposal of the Ministry of agriculture, food and environment on its own initiative, or at the initiative of the corresponding Autonomous Community, can join a National Park terrestrial or marine spaces adjacent to the same, similar, or whose values are complementary with the one (, when if any of the following circumstances: to) that are of ownership of the State or of them communities autonomous.

(b) that it be incorporated into the public assets for better compliance with the purposes and the aforementioned National Parks Act.

(c) that are provided by their owners for the achievement of these purposes.

Law 16/1995, 30 may, Declaration of the National Park of Picos de Europa also includes enlargement by this exceptional procedure.

The proposal that meets these requirements, since enlargement which is proposed is, for the most part, on areas of public property composed of mountains of public utility of the municipalities of Peñamellera Alta and Peñamellera Baja and in a reduced surface, on grounds of alleged private property, provided with the express agreement of the property owners for the fulfilment of the purposes of the law 30/2014 , of 3 of December, and of the law 16 / 1995, of 30 de mayo.

He mentioned article 11 of the law of parks national, is clear as regards them requirements of ownership or possession and as soon as them values natural requires, in first place, that is produce on land adjoining and sets two possible requirements: that are of similar features to them of the Park national, or that their values are complementary to them of the Park national.

The definition of what are those «similar» is inferred from the characteristic features that the Director Plan of the network of national parks established for the territories to include in these spaces, so that the proposed expansion provides: a) representativity. - the territory included contributes to ensure or improve representativeness in the space of natural systems which legislation points to be included in the network of national parks.

(b) expansion. - enlargement enables surface readjustments in the National Park which enhance their ability to sustain ecological processes.

(c) State of conservation - the proposed area presents high conditions of natural and ecological functionality, or is in a position to be able to achieve it as a result of tasks resulting from its inclusion in the National Park.

(d) continuity.--remains the general national park, both physical and environmental continuity.

(e) settlement. - enlargement does not include inhabited settlements.

(f) protection outside. - the result of enlargement improves the environmental permeability and the continuity of the ecological processes between the National Park and its surroundings.

In terms of complementarity, natural values incorporated allow the achievement of the following objectives: 1. increase the representativeness of existing natural systems, of which the Park is representative in the network of national parks (Atlantic forest characteristic of the orocantabrica province); and others, like the Cantabrian holm oaks, with limited representation in the National Park in its current formation. Finally, add areas of foraging, reproduction and feeding of wildlife linked to the protected area.

2 incorporate interesting populations of species of ferns cataloged, linked to the unique habitats of the four rivers or canyons of mountain which are incorporated into the National Park with the extension.

3. incorporate land of connectivity (solanas) between mature forest masses of high quality, which, properly restored, will contribute to the natural and ecological connectivity of the protected space.

BACKGROUND on July 22, 1918 is declared in Spain this first National Park as the mountain of Covadonga, declared as such by the richness of its fauna and its flora. This Declaration included the solid of Peña Santa, located in the provinces of Asturias and of Leon.

3. State natural 1.3.1 hydrography.-the whole of them land now incorporated to the Park national belong to the basin hydrographic of the River Cares-Deva, basin coastal Cantabrian singular by be one of them limited areas River of our country that have with presence of the salmon (Salmo salar L. 1758) and formed by them sub-basins of them rivers Cares and Deva, that unite their flows to form the River Cares-Deva, from the town of breads, capital of the municipality of Peñamellera Baja. The surface provided by the municipality of Peñamellera Alta is distributed in part of three small sub-basins of rivers Mildon, Tajadura and Rubo, of which the first two are attached, being these small tributaries of the River Cares by its right margin. For its part, the municipality of Panamellera low grounds included in the extension correspond to the Sub-basin of the river Rumenes, tributary on the left of the Deva River in the Gorge of La Hermida.

1.3.2 geology and geomorphology - the expansion area is a region very well defined by landforms, which serve as border with other lands. To the West is the Gorge of the river Mildon which delimits the grounds of Peñamellera Alta and of those belonging to the municipality of Cabrales. To the South, with the province of Cantabria Act of limit the peaks of Europe, them more featured accidentally speaking, being it Tajadura its altitude maximum with 1.446 meters. On its eastern side is the mythical Peñamellera (765 m) peak which divides the high of the low, being the river Deva which delimits the Asturian land of the Cantabrians. Finally, by North the slope to the River Cares, forms the limits but without reaching their margins, by express agreement with the municipality of Peñamellera Alta.

They can be divided into three very clear areas: a first that would be located in the foothills of the sierra de Andara in the Picos de Europa; a second, adjacent to the former, that runs through the central area in the Valley of the Cares; and, finally, Penamellera Baja, the Valley that opens from the Hill of Galabin, boundary between the two Penamelleras and the Cantabrian village of Tresviso, towards the Valley of the river Deva, in the Gorge of La Hermida.

This area of the Principality of Asturias is characterized by a geology originated in lower Paleozoic, Cambrian and Ordovician periods, and the Upper Paleozoic, Carboniferous period. In the area of enlargement emphasizes the enormous abundance of limestone formation "Picos de Europa", crossed from West to East, more or less by its middle by a singular band of cuarzoareniscas and soft sandstones that correspond to the so-called «Quarters» formation. Valley funds present alluvial deposits not very wide power.

The terrain in this area is marked by two aspects, the eastern mountains of Picos de Europa, solid block or sierra de Andara, and crating of the Cares River, which separates the sierra del Cuera Andara. This boxing is produced by the presence of a thrust of soft calcareous materials, which have been subjected to erosion by streams of water, producing a trench that acts as a limit. We are on the right bank of the Cares, the study area belongs to the Eastern massif of Picos de Europa, by geology and relief.

Geomorphologically them aspects more featured are the significant thrust between the two formations described and the abundance of walls vertical, of great spectacular landscape and interest faunistic (buitreras, etc.).


1.3.3 flora and vegetation. - incorporates lands that are home to forests of beech of good or very good quality, little or nothing exploited, located on mountains of public utility, being this type of natural system which comes to represent this national park in the network of national parks of Spain. At the same time, masses of mixed forest eutrofo of carbayo and ash are included in its phase of has been dominant, that they come to supplement the relatively low representation of this training in the National Park. Of interest is also the incorporation of Cantabrian Holm, particularly on the slopes of the Gorge of the river Mildon, training little currently represented in the National Park. Included, finally, a spot of laurel (Lauris nobilis l. 1753), of some interest, situated next to the river Rubo. (The habitats of greater interest present, included in the annex I of the law 42 / 2007, of the heritage Natural and it biodiversity) are the 5230 * «thickets arborescent of Laurus nobilis» and the 9340 «Holm of Quercus ilex and Quercus rorundifolia».

Three canyons of mountain of clear interest, those of the rivers Rubo, Tajadura and Mildon, joining particularly as regards these last two, with presence of interesting towns of ferns relicticos as Culcita macrocarpa C. Presl 1836 (species included in the Regional catalogue of species threatened of the Flora of the Principality of Asturias in the category of 'Special interest' and classified as 'Endangered' Atlas of the Vascular Flora of Spain) , Woodwardia radicans (l.) SM. 1793 (species included in the catalogue Regional of species threatened of the Flora of the Principality of Asturias in the category of «interest special») e Hymenophyllum tunbrigense (L.) SM. 1794 (classified as 'Vulnerable' concerned Atlas).

Also, is includes the Valley of the river Rumenes, practically in all its extension, in the inside of the Park national, what carries it of its forest of ribera, with presence singular of the Alder [Alnus glutinosa (Gaertner) L. 1790] and of a very interesting population of the fern real [(Culcita macrocarpa C. Presl 1836)], species, as already is has indicated, included in the catalogue Regional of species threatened of the Flora of the Principality of Asturias in the category of «interest» Special» and classified as 'Endangered' Atlas of the Vascular Flora of Spain.

Highlights, by your interest and in them slopes of the river Rumenes, the presence of an interesting training of Oaks Cantabrian, little represented in the Park national in its conformation current, with presence amid the mass of Oaks, of ones very interesting, by its exceptional size, exemplary of Brown (Castanea sativa Miller 1768). These Oaks belong to the type of habitat 9340 «Holm oak Quercus ilex and Quercus rorundifolia», included in annex I of the law 42/2007. In the Valley of this river, as it rises in height, are formations of Cantabrian mixed forest, ash (Fraxinus excelsior l. 1753) and oak [Quercus petraea (Matt.)] Liebl. 1784], to finish with good demonstrations of forest of beech (Fagus sylvatica l. 1753), subalpine shrublands and grasslands psicroxerofilos criomediterraneos of Festuca sp.

1.3.4 fauna. — in terms of fauna, highlights the presence of all the carnivores of mountain from the region, except the bear (is not this species distribution area), being in the presence of Wolf (Canis lupus signatus Cabrera 1907 subsp.). The presence of the chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica subsp.. parva Cabrera 1911) is a constant in the crags of the high summits. Stresses, also, the incorporation of the area of foraging and nesting platforms (located on the slopes of the Gorge of the river Mildon) of a pair of Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos l. 1758), species included in the Regional catalogue of Fauna in the category of "Vulnerable" and that would be the sixth of the area of the National Park. There are buitreras in the slopes of the Gorge of the river Rubo. The presence of species related to the forest canopy as the goshawk (Accipiter gentiles l. 1758), species included in the Regional catalogue of Fauna in the category of 'Special interest' and the black Woodpecker (Dryocopus martius l. 1758) or rocky cliffs as the common Vulture (Vulture fulvus Hablizl 1783) or the Yellow-billed Chough (Phyrrocorax graculus). Finally, noting the presence of interesting populations of amphibians and molluscs (linked to the habitat of the rivers and streams).

Associated with the inclusion of the Valley of the river Rumenes to incorporate some important frezaderos of salmon (Salmo salar l. 1758), species of singular interest and that, although at the present time it is present in the protected area in the River Cares, and spawns sporadically within the limits thereof, would present a major manifestation of their breeding areas in the National Park.

1.3.5 uses and exploitations. - almost all of the lands that are incorporated into the National Park correspond to listed woodlot as mount utility, corresponding, therefore, typical of this type of land applications, basically type neighborhood, highlighting with breeds of sheep ranching and, above all, goats, that they take advantage of the high altitude grasslands and scrub areas , and the minimum exploitation of firewood made by residents. Not being ordained the respective mountains, organized short activities are not developed, presenting the existing forest masses the shape of irregular mass except in areas closer to towns, where signs for firings, in the few places that have been made, have led to the emergence of contemporary stands, basically of coppice.

The area also has very high interest for public use, with two small tours (PR) which will be strengthened with its inclusion and the possibility of a new PR, spectacular landscape and educational interest, which would draw from Ocean to San Esteban de Cuñaba.

ANNEX II limits and boundaries new limits geographic and boundaries of the Park national of them peaks of Europe in the area of enlargement, considered of this to West, and that is related with them collected in the annex I of the law 16 / 1995, of 30 of mayo, of Declaration of the Park national of them peaks of Europe («BOE» number 129) (, 31 May 1995).
