Hollies of Valgañón
This forest of hollies is truly a singular place. Its hollies are tall and leafy, and some of them are centuries old. Despite their reduced size, they represent one of the most remarkable and best preserved of the Iberian Peninsula, as its “arboreal” hollies form a dense and thick forest and act as shelter for a number of wild species. Formerly, the hollies forest was an important reserve for the supply of firewood, lumber and fodder. Around it stretches the Valgañón Meadow, a vast area of pasture where the livestock runs free, offering one of the best sceneries of the whole Sierra.
