Jerte Valley

Jerte is a small municipality in the Jerte Valley, through which the river of the same name flows. The surroundings are perfect for rural tourism: hiking routes and natural swimming pools in the Garganta de los Infiernos nature reserve make this place a paradise for nature tourism.

Garganta de los Infiernos

The "Garganta de los Infiernos" nature reserve is a protected space, and the most famous spot inside it is known as "Los Pilones": spectacular rock formations produced by the constant erosion of the water, used in summer as a natural bathing area.


At the start of the cherry season, an extensive programme of activities is held centred on this delicious fruit. Another interesting option is a visit to the Cherry Museum, which is 10 minutes from our hotel.


In January, a singular and popular fiesta is held in the municipality of Piornal. The "Jarramplas" roams the streets of the town whilst the locals and visitors throw turnips at him, as has been done for generations.
