Torrecerredo or Torre de Cerredo (La Torre Cerréu in Astur-Leonese language) is a mountain in northern Spain. It has an elevation of 2,648 metres; the highest peak of the Picos de Europa and the Cantabrian Mountains. Torrecerredo is located on the central massif of the Picos de Europa, called Urrieles, on the limits of Asturias and the León provinces. Its summit towers 2,200 metres over the river Cares, and offers wide views over the western massif and the Cares' tributaries.
Torrecerredo was first ascended by Aymar d'Arlot de Saint Saud, Paul Labrouche, Juan Suárez, de Espinama and Francois Salles, from Gavarnie, on June 30, 1882.
