We find ourselves in a territory full of landscapes of rugged geography and unquestionable beauty where we can enjoy its remote corners, its valleys, perhaps enchanted, its rich and varied gastronomy, its ancestral customs and traditions, and the hospitality of its inhabitants... This is the territory of ADRISS, a group of villages surrounded by an incomparable natural setting that will allow you to "Admire, Enjoy, Breathe, Imagine, Simply Feel"..
The environmental diversity of the France, Bejar and Quilamas Mountain Ranges has made them stand out in Spain as a whole. Spaces that stand out for their natural quality, forming an extraordinary mosaic characterised by environmental diversity and quality, in a territory where the mountains, valleys and riverbanks give rise to a wide range of ecosystems associated with the fauna and flora...
Nature thus becomes a first-rate tourist product, contributing to the recreation of a colourful natural museum full of ecosystems, native fauna and flora, as well as landscapes and places of incomparable beauty, where visitors, locals and the natural environment coexist.
The Bejar and France Mountain Ranges Biosphere Reserve, Las Batuecas - Sierra de Francia Natural Park, and the Quilamas and Candelario Natural Spaces are, among others, mountain areas that will delight lovers of nature, hiking and environmental values. In addition, the leafy mountain ranges and the courses of the rivers, which are boxed in by the erosion of their courses, such as the Alagón, the Francia, the Cuerpo de Hombre and the Alto Tormes, form places of unusual beauty and uniqueness. These are the reasons why the Salamanca Mountain Ranges are a must-see destination in Spain, to enjoy a living natural setting.
It's our obligation to respect the environment and to contribute to the fight against climate change.
In the south of the province of Salamanca rise majestically the Bejar y Francia Mountain Ranges. It offers a unique environment characterised by an impressive historical-artistic heritage, several villages have been declared "Historic-Artistic Ensemble", a great cultural richness with festivals and customs of national tourist interest, with natural enclaves declared Biosphere Reserve…
Lo que nos permite realizar un maravilloso viaje en el tiempo, en la historia hacia las remotas épocas neolíticas como testifican las numerosas cave paintings that adorn caves and rocky outcrops, or to the Iron Age, which is evident in the numerous castros vettones que aún se conservan, o tal vez a la época romana a través de las explotaciones mineras a cielo abierto de Las Cavenes o el trazado de La Calzada Romana que unía Emerita con Asturicam (Mérida y Astorga) conservándose tramos de enlosado así como los miliarios que informaban de las distancias o quizás rememorar tiempos de señores y mayorazgos con sus castles and fortifications…
For nature and sport lovers, it offers endless possibilities with endless routes through its mountains, rivers..., the practice of winter sports in the La Covatilla Ski Resort, the area is ideal for water sports, as well as for fishing and hunting.
Revitalising Salamanca Mountain Rates is a project managed by ADRISS to support and accompany individuals and families interested in developing their life projects in our villages, providing them with tools for this transition.
Participating in the project means being part of training activities and accompaniment of these projects, to have access to the information collected in the land bank, connect with the local initiatives and attend the meetings that are organised. Means being informed about funding lines and subsidies, have access to the resource guide of the different populations in areas such as education, health, culture, etc.
You can also collaborate if you are the owner of a house, property or business in disuse and you want to enhance its value so that a family or a business project can be established there by renting, transferring or selling it.
Education and employment
The main objectives of the ADRISS training strategy are the dynamisation of the territory's resources, the promotion of entrepreneurship and the diversification of economic activities.
At ADRISS we know the territory where we are and we know the importance of putting training at the centre of employment development and self-employment programmes.
For this reason, we offer a platform to connect the different economic agents of the territory, the institutions that offer training programmes, the companies that hire labour, the administrations that offer grants and subsidies... all with the aim of continuing development in our villages, favouring generational change, giving visibility to rural women and introducing new technologies and innovation in local companies.
In the Association for the Integral Rural Development of the Salamanca Mountain Rates (ADRISS) we know the territory where we are and we know the importance of putting women at the centre of development programmes. We recognise the fundamental role of rural women in dynamisation, revitalisation and vision of the future, which is why we are launching this comprehensive platform for employment, training and connectivity for all of you.
A platform to connect the different economic agents of the territory, the institutions that offer training programmes, the companies that hire labour, the administrations that offer grants and subsidies... all with the aim of ending the digital divide, promoting quality female employment in our towns and villages and offering a horizon where no woman is forced to leave.
Cooperation and partnerships
ADRISS seeks to establish a series of partnerships with entities that share their same objectives, as we consider that the cooperation between entities and the public-private synergies are the only ways to achieve the aims of the entity.
Creating alliances with different groups and entities, as well as regional cooperation projects, allows us to reach further and generate more opportunities in the Salamanca Mountain Rates.
Because beyond managing projects and energising the territory, our job is to generate employment, businesses, services and stability.
