Cherry trees, Humans, Tourists, Animals

Cherry Tree Pavillion (2008) inhabitants

By amid


The main feature of the Jerte Valley is its single-species cherry orchards which practically cover the whole area. Its renowned high quality stalk-free fruit grows on terraces, defined by stone walls, that span the width of a single tree.J2B

In recent years, the Jerte crop has become a tourist attraction when the blossom becomes a natural spectacle that briefly transforms the landscape. A continuous blanket of white flowers covers the valley in early spring, drawing throngs of visitors who form traffic jams amongst cherry trees in flower, a surreal, oneiric landscape.


The Cherry Tree Blossom Festival is halfway between a traditional procession, a rave and a pagan, Dionysian celebration of the fruits of the Earth.
