Scientific name: Quercus ilex L. ssp. ballota 

This hundred-year old holm oak has become the symbol of the village of Radiquero, where it is known as the “Carrasca de Cazcarra”. It is tree full of character and boasts a beautiful semi-spherical silhouette. Underneath the tree it is wonderful to hear the sound of the leaves blowing in the wind and to take in thousand of pricks of light that reach through its branches to kiss the floor. An unforgettable experience. Many people have enjoyed the shelter it provides and so the tree has seen many celebrations, parties and dances. It has also become an inseparable companion to Bodegas Monclús, where Mercedes, the owner, creates wonderful wines under the DO Somontano label as well as exquisite dishes in her restaurant.
