The willow wood of Buelles

The most natural shores

The shores of river Deva, between the populations of El Mazo and Buelles in the council of Peñamellera Baja, and the Eastern border with Cantabria, we can find one of the most beautiful fluvial fertile plains in Asturias. Considered Natural Monument, the willow wood of Buelles is to close dense jungle, to which allow to enter through a natural path and deserves the most environmental respect.



The river Deva

It is widely known that willows grow best in deep and wet grounds. This particular habitat which allows us to walk by the shores of river Deva, also give us great shade as protection from the sun. In some places this shade is almost impenetrable when the forest reaches its highest density.

The river banks of the Asturian rivers used to be surrounded by very different kinds of forests and species and places of high agricultural productivity. Most of the forests were cut down and for this reason, this willow wood that still keeps itself alive and grows in the medium plots of the river Deva, is of extreme importance. All of this helps to build a low and fertile plain in the very best state of conservation, in accordance with old times.

The shores of large rivers such as the Deva, are the chosen places for the most resistant species of willows which could grow perfectly here forever. All this is the result of a long and hard process. A good example of the vitality of this kind of forest is the willow wood of Buelles which has been growing as a fort, trunk by trunk and step by step over the years. This forest has been defending itself thanks to the protection given by the dense willows bordering it and it is capable of being the worst of the heavy rains. Behind this border we find the second line of willow trees, probably the biggest and best developed wood of all along the Cantabrian Coast.

In these forests the most dominant willow is the white willow (Salix Alba), species of great size. The insides of these forests have suffered from man's devastation, because of the fertile floors. In Buelles, for instance, this deforestation has not been carried out, this place houses many interesting species from an environmental point of view.

Many people show great interest in the fauna living here. There are some populations of sapper plane (Riparia riparia), otters (Lutra lutra) and lamprey (Petromyzon marinus). All these species are included in the Regional Catalog of Species in danger of extinction of the Asturian Fauna.

In addition, there are other interesting species that provide the good quality of these waters, such as the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and the desman (Galemys pyrenaicus).

The town of Buelles

On the other side, the town of Buelles and other surrounding towns are not only attractive for their natural environments but for many more things. One of them has a vast latin americans' culture. The wealth of this architectural patrimony make a visit very worthwhile.
