Trasmiera Ecopark is a cultural and environmental project by Arnuero county. Arnuero is one of municipalities in the beautiful Cantabria region. The region is best known for its stunning beaches and warm climate.

The park, overlooked by lush forests and hills, is a wonderful showcase of what Arnuero has to offer; great natural environment, cultural heritage and history.
