What you can expect

In the province of Avila there is the home town of my mother, a village named Santa María del Tiétar. A small village of only 450 annual inhabitants located in the marvellous Tiétar Valley, known for its castles, its nature and, of course, its food.

On this day trip we will start early in the morning to enjoy the scenic beauty over the valley. Upon our arrival to the village we will be trekking up the mountain to the near village of Casillas for stunning view of the valley and some great breakfast (after we have worked up an appetite).

Afterwards we will head down back to Santa María del Tiétar for a well deserved lunch at one of two places depending on availability. One is a local bar, famous for many dishes including "revolconas" (paprika flavoured mashed potatoes), "torreznos" (fried pork) and many more. The other one a local restaurant famous for its local cuisine including beans, pork, lamb and other many products cultivated in the region.

After lunch, and a coffee, we will walk around the village to see some of its interesting history, the old town and the local life.

Finally we will be heading back to Madrid at dusk.

Take into account that the hike might not be suitable for everybody. It is 3.3 km and it has an elevation difference of 295m. Please come with appropriate clothing and shoes.
