Spanish Overview Map

The Salave project lies in an area north of a typical alpine forest, with moderate to rugged topographic relief characterised by narrow valleys and alpine meadows on high hills. The general area is characterised by a coastal plain forming an east-west strip approximately 5 km wide, with relief ranging from 10 m to 50 m. It is backed to the south by the Cantabrian Range, a mountainous area that extends along the entire northern coastline of Spain. The plain slopes gently to the north from the foot of the mountains and terminates abruptly at the coast.
