Fermoselle arribes del duero

Kingdom of zamora

Fermoselle is one of the villages of Zamora, which borders Portugal and is surrounded by the rivers Duero and Tormes. It is also one of the most beautiful villages of Zamora and gateway to the Arribes del Duero, since from here are born many of the routes that can be done in this area.

Due to its location in the heart of the Arribes del Duero Natural Park, it is called the Balcony of the Duero. Although another nickname it receives, is the village of the thousand cellars, due to the number of subway caves where wine has been fermenting for centuries.

In our visit to Fermoselle we visited some of its essential places, but the truth is that we forgot the map and we dedicated ourselves to walk around the town a little at our own pace, because we were already a little tired, having spent the whole day looking for the best viewpoints of the Arribes del Duero. And why not, if after all we are on vacation.

The interior of the village stands out for its steep and narrow streets. Because the subsoil is full of cellars (they even have 5 levels high), and the houses of popular style with balconies and round arches, are built on the rock, which as it is almost impossible to excavate, has been incorporated into the same buildings.

Ahora rodamos por Salamanca hasta volver a cruzar el Tormes, ya que, en este, su tramo final, actúa como límite provincial. Y tenemos que subir el Mirador del Somaero desde donde podemos ver la Falla del Peine. Seguimos hacia Berrocal Chico y poco a poco llegamos a Trabanca.

Salimos del pueblo por el Camino del Contumero, que sigue siendo el GR-14, hacia la localidad de Villarino de los Aires donde hacemos una parada en el Mirador del Duero y posteriormente en el Mirador de la Falla. Desde ambos podemos ver la zona de Arribes del Duero, justo en el curso del río Duero que hace frontera con España y Portugal.

Dejamos el GR-14 que nos ha guiado hasta aquí. Y continuamos nuestro descenso hacia el Paraje de Ambasaguas o Las Dos Aguas se encuentra en la frontera con Portugal, al noroeste de la provincia de Salamanca y al suroeste de la provincia de Zamora. Recibe este nombre por ser el lugar donde el río Tormes vierte sus aguas al Duero.
