Yésero

Yésero

Situated at 1,132 metres above sea level, and restricted on the north by the Sierra Tendeñera, to the east by the Cotefablo Pass, and to the south by Erata Mountain, Yésero is located in an area of exceptional natural heritage, surrounded by meadows, peaks and ravines.

As is typical in a mountain community, until recently the resources provided by agriculture and livestock were the fountain of the local economy.

Locals have also worked a lot in crafts and in industry, mainly logging and the production of pitch from pine resin.

Nowadays, except for the rearing of cattle, these occupations and the ways of life that went with them are no longer relevant, and today the economy is focused on the demands derived from leisure activities.
