Valle del jerte cherry trees

Between the western foothills of the Sierra de Gredos and the city of Plasencia lies the mountainous region of «El Valle del Jerte», through which flows the Jerte River, a tributary of the Alagón River, in turn a tributary of the Tagus, taking advantage of the tectonic accident of the Plasencia Fault.

Nestled between the mountains of Tras la Sierra and the Sierra de Tormantos, mountains that exceed 1000 meters in altitude, in the northernmost part of the Valley is the highest peak of Extremadura, the Torreón del Calvitero, with 2,401 meters of altitude.

The Jerte Valley has historically been a natural passage between Extremadura and the lands of the Duero. Lands of transhumance, the Camino Real is still used to drive cattle on their journey to the summer pastures.

Given the current situation, and in order to comply with the corresponding safety and hygiene measures to ensure the welfare of all, we will establish the following measures to access the Tourist Office:

Jerte valley in bloom

In addition to cherry trees, the Jerte Valley offers other natural areas that you should not miss. A very well known one is the Natural Reserve of the Garganta de los Infiernos that extends between the municipalities of Tornavacas, Jerte and Cabezuela del Valle.

In addition to this Gorge, in the Jerte Valley there are others, as well as waterfalls and natural pools, such as the Nogaledas Waterfall and the Nogaledas Gorge, in Navaconcejo or the Caozo Waterfall in Valdastillas.

If you want to take beautiful pictures, take a look at one of the many viewpoints in the region and you will see breathtaking landscapes. One of the best known, the viewpoint of Puerto de Tornavacas and another you have in El Torno. In short, the beauty of the landscape of the Jerte Valley and the interesting examples of popular architecture, have allowed it to be declared «Paraje Pintoresco».

Festival of Tourist Interest where a local resident disguises himself in a costume decorated with colorful ribbons and mask. The Jarramplas walks around Piornal playing the drum while neighbors and visitors throw turnips at him.

Camping valle del jerte

I have been able to confirm it during my visits to this valley in that time of the year to make a beautiful route by car among cherry blossoms, which no one has been able to enjoy this year due to the great health crisis from which we are gradually emerging.

In this regard, the Jerte Valley is an ideal destination, both during the summer, a time that largely coincides with the harvesting of cherries, and in the later months when you can see spectacular landscapes of autumn coinciding with the so-called Autumn Jerte Valley.

Between late March and early April, depending on the more or less mild winter weather, the valley slopes are covered with the white color of the cherry blossoms, a great spectacle that each year brings thousands of tourists to visit the valley.

The winding roads that run along both slopes between the cherry plantations in full bloom will allow you to make a tour by car without stress, and with enough tranquility to take all the pictures you want of these spring landscapes with snow-capped mountains in the background.
