There are vast extensions of woodland with oak, beech and birch, creating a mosaic of amazing colours in the spring and summer months, and in particularly, during the autumn.
It has many different species of fauna, including the red deer, roe deer, boar and fox. In more remote, solitary areas, wolves can often be found, and occasionally, bears. The birds that inhabit this region include the vulture, capercaillie and the golden eagle, but it is more common to see kestrels and kites. In the autumn the "bellowing" of the deer can be heard, since this is the time when the males of these species make their mating calls, and the "passage", when the herds of cows from Tudanca (a species native to this zone) pass through on their way back from the higher pasturelands.
