5 The Trembling Chestnut

Although we recommend avoiding weekends, as it becomes massive and loses all its charm, Castañar del Tiemblo is one of the most beautiful autumn landscapes and close to the capital, a landscape that rivals the Montejo Beech. In this case they are chestnut trees, a tree that can live hundreds of years and that as in the case of Tiemblo, you can see it even with the most capricious forms.

Next to the Aran Valley we have one of the most beautiful routes in the Pyrenees, the Pass'Aran.
