Finally today I found a hidden place that I want to know. Isn’t very old place, just from 1948. In the forest is possible to find 3 mines of water, they are close because they are using when is enough water.
The west of Centelles the mountain is like a wall, there is a waterfall but should rain a lot too see. The river is subterranean, but isn’t to important, necessary to have local water, because is the basic element to live.
I like find places like this, the history of people that try to get water to be a better village. Time and the forest make that people forget this place.
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 main cities of this big natural region are Soria, Cuenca and Teruel.
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.
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.
Today more of Asturias with quiet beach, some perfect for surfing, other just to relax.
The temperature in the coast normally isn’t high, only with south wind, but in Asturias is less important than in other regions.
The water is colder than in the Mediterranean sea, but warmer than the Atlantic in Galicia and Portugal. The contrast between the air temperature and the water is perfect in a sunny day, even in some cloudy day. Summer winds are normally calm in the coast, and some of the beach are hidden with trees, grass and rocks then you feel better than in the nearby mountains.
I did all this photo trip with my own photos. I can talk a lot about this amazing regions, but pictures help to have a good idea.
Is the green Spain, very different from the Spanish weather standards. Is similar to be in the south of England.
Restaurants are very good and cheap. For me is one of the best region to eat well for a low price. Sidra is very popular in the region, people drink bottled talking in the bar.
There is a local language not very difficult is you talk Spanish, is the bable.
I don’t talk about the capital Oviedo, fantastic city. The main city of the coast is Gijón, big beach of San Lorenzo.
Asturias have 78 Concellos and is very mountain area, then don’t think that distances are fast. Asturias needs lot of time to know well.
