We recently visited the famous Jerte Valley 200km West of Madrid, on the road towards Palencia.
I was not aware that it is the worlds most densely planted Cherry tree area, and the Cherry trees are nomally in full blossom at the beginning of April.
The blossoming was unfortunately a little early this, but we caught the tail end of it, and it is an impressive sight indeed.
We also walked up through the forest to an icy-clear river that runs through a limestone gorge with some beautiful formations in the rocks.
A highly recommended excursion.
