The Revinuesa Valley forms an enclave full of colors and life that produces a sensation of magnetism with nature itself. It is a key space to understand the geography of the region of Pinares. From this enclave you have access to natural resources, of great recognition and importance of the Iberian Peninsula as the Pico Urbión, Laguna Negra or Risco Zurraquín. The Hoya del Revinuesa or the Laguna Larga are other treasures that only those who travel through this extensive and enigmatic valley will discover.
Its beech and pine trees offer a great diversity of green tones. This is a mixed forest of both species in which it seems that the pine prefers the sun and is the king of height. On the other hand, the beech stays near the Revinuesa River, in a more humid area, giving rise with its leafy canopies to a shady and fresh underbrush. This fusion of flora gives rise to a fascinating ecosystem. Hikers and visitors can enjoy the beauty of the valley during the four seasons of the year.
During one of its many routes, walking and running the valley along the river that gives it its name, you can enjoy the melody that the water creates when it hits the stones, while it erodes and undermines the land in its path. Some time ago, this same water was the one that moved the mills of Vinuesa and offered trout fishing, thus being a source of wealth for all Visontines. Due to some flooding, in the 90’s its course was widened and modified. This way the salmonish trout with red pints in their skin that went up the Revinuesa River to spawn in spring stopped swimming in the waters.
What does maintain its most primary nature, besides being the element that gives the Revinuesa Valley its greatest value, are its morainic walls. Ancient vestiges of what was once the Revinuesa Valley, a glacial valley. Precisely, this geological origin is the trigger for one of the natural wonders that Soria and the Iberian Peninsula have: the Laguna Negra.
