Geology and landscape

The existing relief in the Montes de Toledo is given by an alterancia of hills and valleys (formed by differential erosion) and are arranged in the NE-SW and NNE- SSW guideline .

Fundamententales culminate in the first crests formed by ortocuarcitas. The latter are a result of metapelitic prensencia of materials (usually pizarras9, which are more easily eroded rocks. The vertienentes and backgrounds of these depressions are often covered with debris (surface formations or recent deposits) among which rañas formations ( piedmont plains). Another important landscape element in these mountains are the numerous stony (also called casqueras or scree), which can be seen everywhere in you bark. It tratga large clusters of angular blocks of quartzite formed by falling rocks as result of very frequent cycles of freezing and deshielo.Desde paleontological point of view, the Montes de Toledo have important paleontological sites where you can find several species of trilobites, graptolites, Crucian, equinondermos primitive .... In this respect, they are lde internationally renowned different fossil deposits of this area, among which stand out those of Acebrón or Navas de Estena

Montes de Toledo link to the Crystalline Plateau definiento this piedmont area. There is a ramp ROCSA is extend some 30km from the slopes of the mountains of San Pablo ,, El Castañar, Los Yèbene and El Milagro, until the Tagus River. Its boundaries in the east marks the Algodor River and on the west the river Torcón. It is highlighted in these mountains the Corral de Cantos (1421 m), Penafiel (1416 m) and Love (1380 m) peaks. The plateau has a alineació`n hills that separate clearly in both the plain. They stand on it about 300 meters, so they are clearly visible. They spread over a wide swath of territory from the hill of Noez (1034 m), the westernmost of them all; The Thumb (891 m), Layos (1084 m), the highest of them all. This set of cerror continue in the Sierra de Nambroca with Maria Hill (994 m) and Mount Olive (900 m). Finally, close the structure of Almonacid hill (824 m) at the eastern end. Geologically the plateau consists mainly of migmatitic rocks (gneisses it is having a similiar appearance to the granitic rocks, but their minerals have defieniendo oriented bands of light and dark tones). There is a dense network of drainage consists of a set of streams among which the Algodor and Torcón rivers. In addition, the territory is disectgado numro nurtured by seasonal streams. This river system is mainly provided in the northern sector of the plateau. Almost all channels have rectilinear trace, and south-north directions or northwest, descendiento from the mountains to the Tagus River. In the southern area of ​​the nújmero rivers it is less, so the appreciation of the morphology of the Crystalline Plateau becomes simpler. The territory also has reservoirs, such as Finisterres, Torcón Torcón I and II, Guajaraz and the Stream of Valdecabras.
