Roads N-260 and C-14 in the Spanish Pyrenees:



Between 3:00 and 10:00 the road goes through a nice series of canyons and reservoirs.

Nice, but you don't need to post the same pictures both here and on the Italian thread. You should choose.

"Congost de Terradets", Catalonia
C-13 road and railroad pass through the gorge of "Terradets"
Some of the walls you can see are 500 metres tall.

Sleeping yet town of Kotor, very early in the morning.












It must have been nice to wake up in such pretty environment.










The views are breathtaking.

Some roads I know from Spain:

La Cuevona (the big cave) in Asturias (location). It's the only road access to the village of Cuevas (caves), although the village is also accessible via a metric gauge railway. As you may have noticed, our ancestors weren't very imaginative when it comes to naming things.

La Cuevona by Luis Reigada Seijas, en Flickr


Not far from there, in the Picos de Europa, is the road from Posada de Valdeón to Caín (location):

Carretera Posada-Caín by Antonio Berciano, en Flickr


These gorges are usually called Desfiladeros in Spanish. The most famous among Spanish drivers are the Desfiladero de Pancorbo (N-I / AP-1) and Despeñaperros (N-IV / A-4), because they are used by main routes, but they aren't the most spectacular. Here's a list of some impressive gorges I know of:
Code:
*Congosto del Ventamillo (N-260)
*Desfiladero de Los Beyos (N-625)
*Desfiladero de La Hermida (N-621)
*Desfiladero de Piedrasluengas (CL-627)
*Desfiladero del Oca (N-232)
*Desfiladero de La Horadada (N-629)
*Desfiladero de Sobrón (A-2122)
*Desfiladero de La Yecla (BU-910)
*Hoz de Beteta (CM-210)
*Cañón de Añisclo (HU-631)

Rural roads in my region (La Rioja) oftem seem to be quite picturesque to outsiders with all the vineyards everywhere.
