The Sierras de Béjar and Francia, declared UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, are two mountain sites which are worth a visit especially if you would like to practise Skiing.

Close to it, in Candelario, there is an amazing natural setting which is ideal for some activities, such as hiking, climbing o cycling, because there are routes which go up to the most beautiful mountain places.
