Las hurdes

Las Hurdes ([las ˈuɾðes]; extremeño: Las Jurdis) es una comarca del Sistema Central, en el extremo norte de la provincia de Cáceres en la Comunidad Autónoma de Extremadura, España. Comarca históricamente conocida, Las Hurdes es actualmente Lugar de Importancia Comunitaria de la Unión Europea[1].

Las Hurdes tiene una extensión de 470 kilómetros cuadrados y limita al oeste con la Sierra de Gata, al norte con la Sierra de Francia (provincia de Salamanca) de Castilla y León y al sur con Trasierra/Tierras de Granadilla. Es una región de alta montaña con baja densidad de población. Su territorio está vinculado al vecino valle de Las Batuecas, en cuya franja inferior se encuentra la alquería de Las Mestas, que históricamente forma parte de Las Hurdes.

Se han encontrado evidencias arqueológicas de que la comarca de Las Hurdes estuvo habitada en el Calcolítico. Las inscripciones en piedra más antiguas (petroglifos) datan de unos 4.000 años antes del inicio de la época ibérica romana. Los restos son en gran parte testimoniales, y sólo demuestran que la zona estuvo habitada, ya que no hay evidencias de grandes asentamientos.


«Those heroic Hurdanos are attached to their land; because it is «theirs». It is theirs in property; almost all are owners. Each one has his own. And they prefer to live badly, to suffer, to drag a miserable existence in what is theirs, rather than to be more at ease having to depend on a master and to pay a rent. And then it is theirs because they have made the land, it is their daughter land, a land of cultivation that they have torn, with heroic sweat, from the clutches of the mother nature».

We have been making many trips to Extremadura, it is what we call Extremadura inch by inch and during that time, it was quite common for someone to say to us, «Have you seen the Hurdes? Therefore, when we finally decided to go, we will not hide the fact that we were more anxious than usual. Neither Charo nor I had ever been to that area of Cáceres, in fact, we hardly knew anything about it, we vaguely had the idea that it was a very poor area, for some reason we imagined that it was no longer, that poverty was a thing of the past, we also imagined that it must have a wild nature, if it had been poor, it was normal to think that the developmentalism had not destroyed it much.


Already inhabited in the Bronze Age, as evidenced by the petroglyphs or stone writings found in the area, the harsh environment and the low fertility of the land did not attract either Romans or Arabs. In the High Middle Ages the region was practically depopulated, so in the 13th century it was repopulated with Castilian-Leonese and Asturians, who left as inheritance the dialect that is still spoken in Las Hurdes.

For centuries the region of Las Hurdes belonged to the House of Alba, passing to the Council of La Alberca, until the Hurdanos themselves, tired of paying taxes, bought their lands.

The opening hours of these centers are at the disposal of the traveler, who can request his visit by contacting the town hall to which the chosen Interpretation Center corresponds, in all of them they will be pleased to facilitate the access to the center; another option is to go to the offices that the Mancomunidad de Hurdes has open in Vegas de Coria, where they will carry out this same management cordially.
