The Iberian mountain

The Iberian mountains, the river Ebro and the Mediterranean coast make the border.

This mountains separate the meseta from the valley of Ebro river and also the coast.

Despite the south part is near to the coast the climate is very different. In this area we find the triangle of the cold. Is the coldest area of Spain, but only at night. Also we find the area near the Mediterranean is the most stormy area of Peninsula.

The view from the last peak in Burgos. Interesting area is easy find fossilized animals in the rocks.
Sad Hill, appears in spaghetti western films where Clint Eastwood was the star.
The rivers form canyons in this area
All this natural region the population is very low, even in some areas the density is the lowest in Europe.

The main cities of this big natural region are Soria, Cuenca and Teruel.

There are some rest of the last glacial time.
Laguna Negra, and Neila are the example.

This mountains have some areas that are like big mesetas with big areas above 1000 meters. The example is the way from Madrid to Barcelona, crossing the area of Alcarria.

The geography is complicate in this mountains. Important rivers born here, as Tajo, Duero Atlantic side, but also mediterranean like the Jucar river.

Good trekking routes, good nature and very quiet area.
Alto Tajo is amazing
Perfect place in summer
The landscape of this mountains
Albarracin is a good place to discover. Nice architecture.

Teruel and Castellón are the last province of this mountains.
Storms are usual in summer, also here the density of population is lower but bigger than in Alto Tajo. The roads improved the last years with a highway of Zaragoza, other to Valencia. This helps to have more visitors in this area.
They have good jam, because is very dry area perfect to cure the jam. There aren’t black pork, but the quality is good.
Castellón area despite is close to the coast is quiet, the most popular place is Morella.

Another day I will talk more, because part of Iberian mountains touch with Catalunya in area call Matarranya where are good places to swim in summer.
