Forest of Chestnuts in Compludo
The way that goes among isolated orchards surrounded by stone walls from Compludo leads us to the river Miera.
We can cross it over a stone bridge and go up to Palacios de Compludo. The splendid hundred-year-old chestnuts line up along the lane.
You can get into the forest taking two turns on the left.
The chestnuts, deeply planted in this steep slope have twisted trunks that form fanciful shapes and their perimeter can measure more than 8 meters.
SPECIES: Spanish Chestnuts (Castanea sativa)
