The road runs in the bottom of a narrow canyon. Tis is one of the most spectacular points:


A "twin road" at Spain.

It is located at Picos de Europa, region of Castilla y León (very near the village of Cain, the only way to go there).

Until four years ago that road was almost 40% narrow than now!!!!!. Take a look about how they got more space with an artificial bridge

I think Vätterleden in Sweden is more beautiful than Blå vägen.

Vätterleden is the part of the motorway at the east side of the lake Vättern. Its a part of the E4 from Stockholm to Helsingborg.

Its a beautiful motorway.

In Slovakia I would highlight III/011075, which is not some major road, but it's definitely picturesque.




There are tons of other scenic roads.

I could contribute the A 92 in Spain because of the mountains, the motorway-bypass of genova (A 10) becauce it runs more or less right through the city, you can watch people eating in their living-rooms from the motorway. The French A 8 between the border and Frejus (mountains)

Ex-SP3 through the Furlo Gorge, near Acqualagna, Marche, Italy


"Furlo" is a corruption of Latin word "forulum", meaning "little hole". The little hole is this one, the most ancient still used road tunnel in the world, dug by Romans in 77 a.D.:




In this picture you can see, beside the tunnel in the red circle, the most ancient tunnel in the world tout court, built by Etruscans centuries before:

A short gorge between the town Vratsa in North-Western Bulgaria and the village Zgorigrad, from where you can go to the pictoresque Ledenika cave:

Indeed! And sometimes even uglyness can be picturesque as well, like in our harbours, e.g. here.

@Chilio: Wow I did not know the rocks are that high near the Vratsa area, you have to raise your head to see all of them, great.

That's about the most hilly as you can get here. Actually, there's one 'climb' on a motorway, the A2 towards Maastricht. Southbound you'll get a relatively nice view, while northbound there's even a short 3-lane 'climbing' section.

[I] - Veneto - AURONZO DI CADORE (BL) - SP 49

"Misurina Lake" + the vary famous "Tre Cime di Lavaredo" of the Dolomiti muontains






In these last three pictures, the payment toll to go by car (or by bus) at the "foot" of the mountain; the "top oh the road" at "Rifugio Auronzo" : m. 2333; Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Three Lavaredo's peaks)







I spent there my 2009's summer holidays

Could you indicate this road on Google Maps? I can't locate it.
