Today you will cycle out of the town of Oropesa through the fertile planes of La Vera toward the impressive mountains of Gredos. This area of Spain is only around 400 meters high and it is just south of the Mountain range so that it is characteristic for its richness in water and its agreeable and mild winters. The land is very rich and it is known for its vegetable production and the tobacco plantations. As we cycle through quiet roads we will see closer and closer the high mountains of Gredos with its highest pick being the Almanzor (2592 m).
After lunch a short ride will take us to the Garganta de Cuartos where there is a lovely old Roman bridge. Here we will have the option of taking a transfer to our hotel in Jarandilla de la Vera or keep on cycling the last 12 km with some demanding hills ahead.
Accomodation in the Parador of Jarandilla, a restored palace full of history.
