Hell Gorge, "Los Pilones"

Route of extraordinary beauty to the Natural Reserve "Garganta de los Infiernos" ( Hell Gorge) that starts from a place known as "Los Arenales" on the road between Jerte and Cabezuela. It is an easy walk and not very long between oaks. But the real show comes when we walk alongside the giant pots (pylons) result of erosion over millions of years by the circulation of round stones within these holes in the rock.
The transparency of these cold waters allows to view the boulders at the bottom of the holes from a distance. The water current in the gorge and the song of different birds that give category to this Nature Reserve will coo you so you will leave aside your tensions. The water is not as cold as they say and if the input is shocking, when youŽll lie on the rock in the sun and youŽll dry off, you  will seem as relaxing. In Cabezuela del Valle weŽll see fine examples of traditional architecture with wood and adobe in walls and masonry on floor.
