Robledillo de Gata. Alagontrip Extremadura Aworldtotravel 16

Located in the North of Caceres, Extremadura, Sierra de Gata treated us to a few relaxing days filled with laughs and good moments while enjoying the region as part of #Alagontrip blogtrip last week.

We visited four cozy villages and uncountable natural pools to face the high August temperatures.

It's pretty difficult to just not jump like crazy in those natural pools when visiting during the Spanish summer

#Alagontrip blogtrip was put together by Extremadura Turismo and Blog On Brands. Indulging baths were possible thanks to the awesome swimsuits of The Indian Face , bags were provided by Osprey Packs thanks to JAM Collective and we got other travel issues as a water bottle and a hammock from Grand Trunk Goods thanks to Deep Creek PR . Although all these companies and DMO helped us to visit Sierra de Gata and Extremadura; all opinions are, as always, our own.

    Felicidades A World to Travel.
    Con vuestro trabajo nos acercais al Valle del Alagón.
    Lugares de gran belleza y armonía. Identidad sabiamente conservada en tierras de calma y cielos limpios desde donde es posible ver claramente la Via Lactea.

      Gracias! Parece que el tiempo se detuvo en los pueblos de la Sierra de Gata. Y qué decir de las más de 20 piscinas naturales de la zona!! Es un paraíso 🙂
