Cultural Route to Arroyo de la Luz and Barruecos.
The first stop will be in the village of chimneys (Navas del Madroño), we´ll visit this village and the curiosity of an image of the Virgin Mary pregnant, the image of the Virgen of "O". Then we´ll visit the nearby town of Arroyo de la Luz where we´ll enjoy the wonderful altarpiece of "Divino" Morales n the Church of Our Lady "de la Luz". Already in Malpartida, we´ll be impress in Vostell Museum, this time with a different art, since among them there are four centuries. We jump then seamlessly,
from the sixteenth-century religious painting (Mannerism) to Fluxus Movement and the Land Art of Wolf Vostell (from the 70s years). The place which houses this museum is a unique beauty for what is recognized as a Natural Monument. These are called "Barruecos". It also has a key importance in transhumance. In wool wash came to work more than 100 workers in the nineteenth century. So that, well worth a circular walk of about 8 km in the hiking called
of the three ponds. To top off the day, if the dates coincide, we attend the film festival horror of Arroyo de la Luz, in its medieval castle (August) or festival of contemporary music at the Museum Vostell (September). If not, we can return to Plasencia first visiting the nearby town of Casar de Cáceres where, besides walk its streets, squares and arches, we could enjoy a tench, Extremadura typical fish that brought the Emperor Charles V.
