Cerro del Águila or Romperropas, which shelters the caves, is located at the heart of Tietar Valley which offers various activities to relax and be in contact with nature
Tietar Valley is located within the Regional Park of Sierra de Gredos, a spectacular natural creation shaped by glacial erosion, once considered by Miguel de Unamuno as the “stony heart of Spain”. In Gredos there are many lagoons and gorges among others, which together with the majestic Almanzor peak of 2,592 meters high, make it a favorite place for hiking enthusiasts or mountain lovers.
There are many activities to enjoy in the region that involve both leisure and sports, as well as cultural interests. Tietar Valley has enormous historical value of palaces, castles and monasteries. Mountain bikers have a BTT Bajo Tiétar center, where they can access all the information about different trails of Sierra de Gredos. Those who love nature can visit the Abejas del Valle Museum in Poyales del Hoyo and discover the fascinating and busy world of bees, or visit Centro de Interpretación of the Regional Park of Sierra de Gredos.
For experienced horse-riders as well as beginners, the region has a long-standing equestrian tradition to explore the landscape on riding excursions. Several companies dedicated to this type of tourism, offer visitors the possibility to enjoy different trails to discover the beauty of the most impressive places hidden in the region, also known as the “Andalusia of Avila” thanks to its pleasant climate throughout the year.
