El Alto Palancia

Main image


The river Palancia, fed by numerous tributaries and springs, waters the fertile orchards of the district, snaking briskly through mountain gorges and slowing down to feed quiet pools hidden in the soft foliage provided by poplars, aspens and willows on its banks as it journeys down to the sea. The sierras of Espadán, Calderona, Espina and Javalambre form the natural frontier of the district, surrounding a river valley which has served as the major link between the region of Aragón and the Mediterranean for centuries untold.
