Navaleno is located in an area where abrupt land of the north-western mountains of the Iberian System such as Neila, Urbion and Cebollera, blend into the central plains of the Douro River.

 

This town’s history revolves around the pine and road industry. Most of the villagers worked as wheelwrights or in transport, and this profession was very much protected and privileged throughout the years by royal laws such as the one in 1636 that granted Cabin of Cartwright benefits to San Leonardo, Arganza, Vadillo, Casarejos and Navaleno for their service to the crown.

 

Among the large extensions of pine forest you can find many big game animals, and it’s not unusual to see deer and roe deer in the area. In fact, this municipality is included in the Nacional Hunting Reserve of Urbión.

 

In the past, Navaleno’s architecture followed the typical artistic models of the area of Pinares that can be seen in the stone houses in the neighbourhood of Triana. There are two religious monuments that are a must-see: the church of San Esteban Protomártir, with an interesting wooden lattice, and the chapel of San Roque.

 

Many are the natural spaces you can find in Navaleno. Some of them worth mentioning are Valdelahierba, Barranco-Lobo, Raso Manarena, Fuente la Raíz, Cova La Loba, Atalaya de Mojón Pardo, Vallejondo, Cuevas del Moro, La Cruceja, Fuente  La Ramona, Paso de la Soltilla, Fuentes de Corrales, Paso de la Solana, Junta de los Tres Valles and Atalaya de Brabojo. Along with these natural heritage sites, there are other manmade ones such as La Fuente del Botón, Fuente La Chorlita, Fuente Rovellanos and Fuente La Dehesa Nueva.

 

But Navaleno with no doubt is the nation’s leader in mycology. The locals turned this town and its forests into the best destination in the province for mycology lovers. In autumn they celebrate their traditional mycology fair with workshops, field trips and mushroom picking. It is truly a paradise for all the senses.
