AWAKENING DEL VALLE
(From 16 to 22 March)

In the valley of spring all begins with the "Awakening
Valley", with snow still on the highest peaks of
Extremadura, with its river and its many gorges
welcoming their melting and transforming the region into
the Valle del Agua.

It's time to enjoy the unique spectacle of the jerteñas
throats and routes around them. Its spectacular
waterfalls that contrast with peace along the river that
unites us and gives its name.

This is an especially ideal time to practice outdoor
activities such as hiking or trekking, mountain biking,
climbing, canyoning, paragliding ...

It is also a good time to see birds (birding,
birdwatching) as it is now when migratory begin to
go home and hillsides and forests is renewed,
exuding animal and plant life ... inviting the traveler
to enter them, wishing be discovered.

CHERRY BLOSSOM
(From March 23 to April 8)

With the advent of "Cherry Blossom" mountains offer visitors the spectacle of one of the largest gardens in the world
cultivated by man.

The mountain breeze carries the unmistakable smell of spring in the region, which envelops everything, and the sunshine is
reflected in immaculate white fields.

Around this natural phenomenon the Feast of National Tourist Interest Cherry Blossom proposes hiking trails, mountain biking gear,
re-enactments and representations of the life and customs of the Jerte Valley ...

A natural phenomenon as beautiful as unpredictable and fleeting that you should see with your own eyes at least once in life
