Transhumance in Spain

July 23rd, 2007 | by nick |

I’ve put together these two articles on transhumance in Spain:

  • Las Cañadas Reales (The network of drovers’ roads covering 125,000 km)
  • La Mesta (The medieval association of sheep holders which helped form the network of paths)
  • La Venta del Lobo. Impossibly bleak and ruined resthouse along the Cañada Real through the Sierra de la Culebra. A cherry tree is often the sign of old human habitation.
