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.
