Surrounding area and activities
Both the Hotel and the Casa Rural are located within the Comarca del Sever which includes the Sierra de San Pedro, the Tajo International Natural Park and the Sierra de San Mamede Natural Park. The proximity of these 3 ecosystems helps with movement between and the expansion of numbers of each species. For example, the Comarca del Sever has the highest density of population of the Egyptian vulture in Europe and the Sierra de San Pedro Special Protection Area (ZEPA) contains the highest concentration of pairs of Spanish Imperial eagles in Extremadura.
As well as an astonishing diversity of flora and fauna, the area is also rich in history, from Megalithic dolmens and menhirs through to the Romans, Visigoths, Reconquest, Military Orders, Napoleon and the smugglers of more recent times.
There are many well-marked walking and cycling paths in the area, covering a wide range of distance and difficulty, as well as a newly inaugurated river cruise, which passes through protected areas of the Tajo International Natural Park .
For photos and brief outlines of the history and natural environment, please see our Facebook page COMARCA DEL SEVER.
For days out, the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Caceres , Evora and Merida are just over an hours drive away or if you would prefer to absorb some of the local culture, we have a full list of all fiestas in the surrounding towns, villages and hamlets on both sides of the border.
