Sunrise in Cot de Oreamuno

In this picturesque and rural place of only 15 square kilometers, precisely, the productive area of the north of the province begins. In this town, the vast majority of its people dedicate themselves to agricultural work, and from very early on you can see the parade of laborers through streets and trails towards the main road to board the trucks that will take them to farms much higher up.
