Ambroz Valley is a region located in the northern province of Cáceres, in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos. With a population of 8,219 inhabitants and an area of 235 km2 the Association of Municipalities is composed of eight locations: Abbey Road Aldeanueva, Baños de Montemayor, Casas del Monte, Throat, Choker, Hervás and Segura de Toro.
Located in the heart of the Sierras del Norte de Extremadura, flanked by Jerte Valley to the east, and Granadilla Hurdes west, south and Plasencia Sierra de Béjar the north, is crossed by the highway N-630 (Gijón-Sevilla ) or Ruta de la Plata.
Valle del Ambroz historically has been a place of passage. This is demonstrated by the remains of the Roman road of Via de la Plata, or the Western drovers' Soriana and Vizana that are still used by nomadic herders. These roads have left their mark on the open and friendly nature of the inhabitants of Ambroz.
Its privileged location makes it a true oasis of nature, with a special microclimate that provides mild winters and cool summers. In just 30 kilometers you can go altitudes above 2100 m that shelter from cold north winds and snow most of the year, to 400 m. where the pasture shows its splendor. We can say that is a small vial where they meet all the essences, a showcase of different ecosystems of great wealth.
