Las Hurdes covers an area of 470sq-km (180sq-mi), bordered with Sierra de Gata to the west, Sierra de Francia (Salamanca Province) of Castile-Leon to the north and Trasierra/Tierras de Granadilla to the south. It is a relatively high mountain region with low population density. There are seven rivers cutting stony valleys in Las Hurdes: The Río Malo or Ladrillar, Batuecas, Hurdano, Malvellido, Esperabán, Ovejuela and the Río de Los Ángeles.
Above is the Malvellido river, which has numerous meanders along the convoluted path. The most spectacular are under the viewpoint of El Gasco. A panoramic view, with the spectacular torrent of water from the river.
