The Environment

Iscles possesses great natural wealth & beauty

The village is surrounded by two ravines through which water flows most of the year, feeding the valley with brimming life. Trees like oaks, holm oaks, elms and red pines, medicinal and autochthonous plants, animals like the roe deer, wild boars, foxes… an endless number of smaller creatures and many species of birds that  cheer our days and nights with their songs.

The environment of Iscles is formed by some very particular rocks sculpted by the formation process of the Pyrenees. It is part of an important geological area rich in minerals, clays and fossils, representing 35 million years of Earth’s history with a large range from different limestones with tropical fossils to sandstone with the remains of Europe’s last dinosaurs. 

We are planting gardens and growing several organic orchards we sustain from on most of our day to day. This winter we hope to start the construction of a large greenhouse that will allow us to extend the seasons and enjoy fresh vegetables all year round.
