I care. I draw. I support.

Bermiego Yew tree, known locally as the “Teixu l’Ilesia”

In a quiet churchyard in the town of Bermiego stands a remarkable tree. Commonly called the Bermiego Yew, it’s known locally as the “Teixu l’Ilesia,” which in the Asturian language means “The Church Yew.”

Over 2000 years old

The giant plant has stood in this spot for well over 2,000 years and holds a deep significance for the locals both past and present.

Its trunk measures roughly 23 feet in diameter (about seven meters), and it stands like a great guardian of the church grounds.
