Located south of the province of Avila, we find this spectacular natural setting of lakes, gorges, circuses, cliffs, galayos and moraine deposits, scenario in which dwells among others, the famous ibex. In the Central Cordillera, separating the Douro and Tagus rivers, like a granite wall, the Sierra de Gredos, rises a space carved by glacial erosion which highlights Circus and the Laguna Grande de Gredos, chaired by the slender peak Almanzor with 2,592 meters, the maximum height of all the Central System.
The route begins in Plataforma de Gredos, where we leave the car parked to begin the adventure.
We will pass near the Reguero Llano shelter and the meadow pools to reach Barrerones, a steppe that will give us some incredible views and Circo de Gredos Laguna Grande. Once in the pond, we look for a good place to dine and spend this wonderful night under millions of stars.
In the morning we will have breakfast at the Elola shelter and enjoy the sunrise and its lights. Before the sun reaches the lagoon, we descend enjoying the wonderful view from the mountain.
