Photographer's Note

When I posted Charo's portrait yesterday, it came to my mind that I hadn't any posts of my short trip to the region where she was born.

I am aware that it isn't such a great photo, but it's the first panoramic view in TE of this beautiful town located in the lower part of the gorgeous Jerte Valley, which is mostly famous for the cherry blossom. I guess that I have seen this place in the less gorgeous seasons (Winter and Summer), but I would still find it beautiful even if I hadn't heard about the cherry blossom season. I think I read somewhere that the valley, which is quite narrow and about 36 km (22 mi) long, has over one million of cherry trees.

The town proper is quite welcoming and has a very interesting and well preserved historic part that kept a much medieval atmosphere.

Location of the POV (latitude, longitude): 40.0536,-6.047
