Salamanca Pond

When still the colors, the scents and the landscapes of the Valley of the Batuecas are fresh, I am going to write this post. The Batuecas for which it does not know very clearly where to locate it is it to the north of the Hurdes cacereas and to the south of earth salmantinas. Located Mountain range of France in the heat of, is the natural space of the Batuecas. These last years, I finish of a way or another one, returning to these hard and resistant earth that still keep with fervor their natural treasures. In this occasion, we lodged in the Abbey of the Templarios (already I will speak to you of her more ahead) and yesterday, we decided to enter itself in the entrails of the Valley of the Batuecas, guidances almost exclusively by reasoning of the Batuecas river, is worth the redundancy. In search of the neolithic paintings that hide the multiple shelters, we began the way and we discovered that rock art much more. Butterflies of thousand colors and sizes, liblulas electrical, Mediterranean disks, oaks, cypresses and pines, that are what it accompanied all the route to us. In the shade of the leafy trees ran our way, and each two by three, we made a paradita in one poza of crystalline waters.

Refreshing bath there are where them, but better than any spa urban that boasts. Cascades, toboganes and pozas, followed one another tranquilamentes, offering their blessing to the paseantes. Clean route, still without apparent rest of tins of beer or accumulated cigarettes. A wonderful respect to idyllic surroundings. Inasmuch as time I ask? I hope much that. While the way is hard and there is not a bar that way, its beauty will last. And for today, only I tell this you, my wonderful encounter with an enchanted valley PS. One forgot deciros to me where east route begins.

My advice is that you go through the House of the Park that is when coming out of the Pond Batuecas direction (a building of recent construction). There they will give to all the information and planes you that you need for nonperderos anything the Mountain range of France. I leave the exact directives you of how arriving until there, trusting that no you will leave sign of your passage by the human sweepings river, still so immaculate. According to you are lowering the port of the Opening (after all the curves), you will by hand find a signal of national parks right quite great, that puts ” reserve of caza”. It indicates a way without asphalting that mts is going to give to about 200 the entrance of the Monastery of the Batuecas. You put that way, and you leave the car there same. The truth is that parking is little, and the guards of the park take a walk that way, that never comes bad. There the footpath begins that accompanies the river.
