Ancient elms of Cabeza Buey
Species: Elm (Ulmus minor)
Age: 450 years
Region: Cabeza Buey, Badajoz, Spain
Templars Elms
These 7 ancient elms are considered the last representation of the urban olmedas of Extremadura. Despite the threat of Dutch elm disease(a disease that has killed more than 1 million trees in Spain and more than 1 billion in the world) these trees have managed to remain standing, presiding over the surroundings of the hermitage of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Belen, of great artistic historical value and with Templar origins. In this area an old pilgrimage has been celebrated since the year 1650.
