Cherry trees in blossom festival
From Mar 31, 2017 to Apr 8, 2017
The Jerte Valley, in Extremadura, celebrates the flowering of the cherry trees every year.
It only happens for a couple of weeks a year, usually at the end of March and beginning of April, depending on the weather. During that time the hills in the valley turn completely white with cherry blossom. Exhibitions, medieval markets, open-air celebrations, routes or tasting sessions, amongst other activities, take place in the towns in the valley: Valdestillas, Tornavacas, Rebollar, Piornal, Navaconcejo, Jerte, El Torno, Casas del Castañar, Cabrero, Cabezuela del Valle and Barrado, all of them in the province of Cáceres.
