How to get to

  • In Villanueva de la Vera you will find the Gorge of Minchones, formed by a great stream of water and numerous ponds that will delight the whole family during the summer holidays.

    The Gorge of Minchones is located in the municipality of Villanueva de la Vera in Cáceres and it is characterised mainly by its having a great stream of water and being a little less accessible than the rest of the gorges around it. These peculiarities are the real attraction for the visitors that come here year after year to find relief from the summer heat in its waters - waters that flow into the Tíetar river and irrigate the extensive tobacco plantations on its banks.

    But this gorge holds many more surprises as you can also enjoy a swim in the ponds that you will find on the way down it, such as the one called Los Muros, where you will see the ruins of an old Roman bridge, the Islillas pond and the Minchones reservoir.
