The Tejeda del Sueve in the Sierra de Sueve is probably the largest yew forest in Europe, and one of the oldest forests in the continent. There are some 8,000 yews, many of which are more than 1000 years old, covering some 80 hectars. El Mundo newspaper considered it one of the eight most important forests in Spain.
