The Gredos Sierra mountain range and the region of La Vera

During several months a year the snow covers the peaks on the horizon. This mountain range forms a natural screen which sooths the winter temperatures. The ever present water flows down the rivers, into the streams, brooks and gorges- perfect spots to take a dip.

The Gredos Sierra is an ancient granite mass, with younger areas like the outstanding Pico Almanzor peak formed during the Alpine Orogeny.
The mountain slopes are covered with Pyrenean oak, pine trees, chestnut trees and Spanish broom. This is a
perfect location for hiking, hunting, and for unique species of fauna as is the Iberian ibex.

At the foot of the mountain, the region is bountiful in water and cultivates cherries, figs, terraced olive groves alongside palm trees and orange trees, tobacco fields, raspberries, kiwis, and also peppers which make pimentón a type of paprika famous from this region.
