The Campo Charro
The holm oak meadows are the typical landscape in Salamanca. The fighting bull livestock is kept walking around these meadows. They are in the middle of the province, with important locations, such as La Fuente de San Esteban, Aldehuela de la Boveda, Matilla de los Caños del Rio, Vecinos or Tamames.
There are other places that invite the visitor to walk through these pastures, such as the hermitages. These are the places where the lively popular religious pilgrimages take place: Valdejimena Virgin Hermitage in Horcajo Medianero; Virgen del Cueto Hermitage in Matilla de los Caños or Cabrera Hermitage in Las Veguillas.
Although the province of Salamanca offers a great variety of landscapes, snowy summits, sierras, valleys, canyons and plains, the dehesa is undoubtedly the most significant landscape; these are places full of holm oak trees and some oak trees which reach the horizon.
This centre shows the ecological values of this natural civilized landscape, which is wild and fruitful at the same time. There are didactic activities for children and young people as well as tutorial rooms for professionals; there is also a research area about the black truffle.
This is a sustainable model of exploitation and natural resources development. In this way, the development of the holm oak tree meadows and the fighting bull go together.
