Gredos has already received recognition as a unique wine region, but I hope they will be given their own appellation as nothing looks more like a real geographical unit than the Sierra de Gredos.

Villagers of the Sierra de Gredos: transhumant cattle-raisers in central Spain. [William Kavanagh] -- This volume, the first study of a transhumant cattle-raising community in Spain, is based on the extensive fieldwork at La Nava de San Miguel, a village in the province of Avila in central Spain.

The Sierra de Gredos is a mountain range in central Spain that spans the provinces of Ávila, Salamanca, Cáceres, Madrid, and is part of the much larger Sistema Central of mountain ranges.

Its highest point is Pico Almanzor, at 2, metres and it has been declared a natural park by the Autonomous Community of Castile and Sierra de Gredos is one of the most extensive Coordinates: 40°15′N 5°13′W / °N °W .

We hear from one young man who returned—preferring the independent herding lifestyle over working for others. Credits: Villagers of the Sierra De Gredos: Disappearing World ().

Summary: The villagers of Navalguijo in the Sierra de Gredos of Central Spain live in a village perched high in the mountains and they face an extreme climate with very cold winters and hot summers. The soil is acid and poor, and the steep slopes and short growing season mean that.

The Sierra de Gredos is little known, yet it offers some of the finest walking in Spain. This region offers a wealth of varied walking routes from your base in the northern half of the Sierra in the tiny village of Hoyos del Espino, nestled on the edge of the Gredos Regional Park and against a breathtaking backdrop of jagged granite peaks.
