This unpredictable weather that is driving us crazy by not knowing how to dress each morning is also affecting the cherry trees and it is difficult to predict when they will bloom. At the moment, everything indicates that it will coincide with the Easter and that is why the most significant festivals that are celebrated around this show They are scheduled for the last days of March.

The flowering of the cherry trees in the Jerte Valley lasts about ten days and turns the fields white

The cherry blossoms are spectacular. The field is dyed white and from afar appears to have such a spongy texture that it could be confused with clouds that have become tangled in the branches of the trees. A spectacle of nature lasts about ten days, which makes it something even more special.

Second and third stops

We continue heading north entering the valley until we reach the town that gives it its name, Jerte. Completely surrounded by fruit trees, in spring it is one of the busiest spots. Within the town, the oldest and most interesting part is the neighborhood known as Los Bueyes, which survived the great fire that took place during the War of Independence in 1809.
