EL BIERZO

El Bierzo is a Spanish rural area located in the north-west of the province of León, in the autonomous region of Castilla y León.

El Bierzo is a group of small valleys in a mountainous area along with a wide, flat depression, the lower Bierzo, which influences the types of crops grown.

El Bierzo has a very special microclimate, highly suitable for the crops grown in the area. It has a mild, benign, rather temperate climate prone to a degree of humidity, all undoubtedly due to the fact that El Bierzo is located in a valley.

It also offers an growing rural tourism industry focused on the beauty of its natural landscapes, such as the Ancares, or man-made landscapes, such as Las Médulas, as well as the Camino de Santiago.
