Hunting in the Beceite Mountains, Spain.
These limestone mountain ranges, though not high in elevation, are steep and rugged, forming a sharp contrast with the neatly tended fields and ancient orchards of its unspoiled valleys. The mountains are blanketed with a Mediterranean forest comprised of pines, live oaks and thorny bushes.
Bancales, what the locals call the old farms that dot the landscape, infuse this natural area with a sense of nostalgia. Tones of rosemary and thyme can be detected throughout this fertile region. The elevation varies from 1,100 to 5,900 feet. Our favorite hunting spots in this area are in the provinces of Castellon & Teruel.
