But today we are going to stop in Salamanca, a plateau place, full of heritage and good food, but which also has some of the most emblematic and most visited waterfalls throughout the year.

One of the most incredible spectacles in our country is the “Pozo de los Humos”. The surprising waterfall with a drop of more than 40 meters, and which forms an impressive waterfall in an environment of gorges and superb vegetation.

This is the main attraction of the Arribes del Duero Natural Park.

But also, a few meters before the Huces falls we find the Pozo de las Vacas, with the air of a legend from yesteryear, which one must ask, to know what is true about it.

There is a hiking route, although it is about 12 kilometers long that allows us to reach it, although it can also be reached by car.

And without leaving Arribes del Duero, we approach Hinojosa de Duero. There we came across the Camaces Cachon, which can be seen from a viewpoint. Highly recommended to visit during the rainy season.
