The Gredos Mountains and Almanzor Peak
In its privileged location, Madrigal de la Vera offers an imposing view of the snow-capped Mansur peak, also called “the Moor” with its 2.592m altitude. Mountain enthusiasts can start nearby, in El Raso, on the lesser known, but attractive, climb to the top.
The region has a large number of endemic flora and fauna. The ibex, the Mansur salamander and the common Gredos’ toad are proof to that.
You can walk up to the Mansur from El Raso (Wikiloc – Spanish).
