Photographer's Note

Vale of the Jerte is a region of the Autonomous region of Extremadura (Spain) placed in the Province of Cáceres. His capital, as administrative center, is the municipality of Plasencia.

The Vale of the Jerte is between two mountain ranges: the Saw of Tormantos to the southeast and the mounts of Traslasierra to the northwest, where one finds the highest point of the region, the Calvitero, which height is of 2410m. These two saws belonging to the Central System constitute his natural limits.
In any occasion the vale has his magic, but his autumns are special when thousands of red cherry trees dye of fire his hillsides. Such is the beauty of this singular tree that, in April when the snow begins to move back, his white flowering floods the whole vale producing an optical illusion difficult to forget for the visitor.

It offers to the visitor a landscape alternation, giving him the possibility of meeting again with the nature, being able to cover the innumerable gullets that descend abruptamente from the mountains or to penetrate in his leafy forests.

Two complementary WS.
