The great forest mass and the Turia River

In Aras de los Olmos, dozens of square kilometres are covered by a forest cover that defines the landscape and life of the municipality.

The municipal area is crossed by the Turia River and its tributaries, generating a rich biodiversity – declared a Biosphere Reserve– whose maintenance depends on appropriate policies of coexistence between the population and the territory. The traditional uses of an agricultural and livestock economy have disappeared and must now be replaced by a correct use of forest resources and the territory.

Aras de los Olmos, through exhibitions and routes, shows us some of the keys to remember to preserve this crucial environmental objective for mankind.
