Summary

Have a fabulous walk in the mountainous region of Sierra de Francia.

Get lost amongst terraces of olive groves, vineyards, orchards and small vegetable plots as you discover a paradise untouched by mass tourism. Dominated by vast oak and chestnut forests, the region rewards you with nice scenery, excellent weather, and traditional way of life.

The mountain villages retain their narrow streets and stone watch towers since the middle ages. The only sound you will hear on your walks will be birdsong and the distant sound of running water. Filled with varied walks and nature hopping, this Salamanca walking tour is a must for those looking to enjoy and discover off the beaten tracks.
