La Raña

Add it to your travel notebook

It is a stony plain that forms gently sloping ramps, on which a type of clayey, compact and not very permeable soil develops, which favours the waterlogging of the land and the appearance of lagoons such as La Laguna Grande (The Large Lagoon).

In any case, its grassy appearance is the result of centuries of human interaction with nature. Nowadays, it combines cereal crops, extensive dry farming, scattered holm oak pastures, and patches of olive groves. At the same time, the most widespread tree is the holm oak, an excellent ally of the livestock for its contribution of shade and food.

This is a true reflection of Alcoba de los Montes' vocation for livestock farming, which dates back to the Middle Ages.
