Description

Our goal is no other than to reach what was known through Alfonso’s XI book written in the 14th century, the Book of Hunting (Libro de la Montería), as the the alcornocal fermoso – which is Medieval Spanish for ‘beautiful cork grove’.  
In it we shall find seven dolmens, three of them still in a relatively good state of conservation.  
Their timelines, as well as different uses by the different prehistoric communities that are related to these monuments are some of the interesting subjects that we shall address while we visit this beautiful forest.
