Make Castilla y Leon the right way!

Castilla y Leon gets its name from the many castles that are spread all over its territory. Land of romanesque and gothic architecture, you will get surprised by the immense beauty of cities like Segovia or Salamanca and by the many small jewels you will encounter on your trip… and if you enjoy food and wine this is your land! This region occupies the main surface in central Spain, a land where locals claim the best Castellano is spoken and where traditions are still kept in many ways, not just during celebrations, but also in daily life.

The most beautiful villages of Castilla Leon

La Alberca Salamanca

La Alberca

This village of some 1,500 inhabitants lies at an altitude of 3,444 ft. and is one of Spain’s most charming spots. It has kept much of its medieval character and is now
under national protection. Outside the idyllic village, with its narrow streets and fine squares there are some fine farmsteads with canopy roofs and bay windows. Most
impressive of all, however, is the village’s main square with its arcades of wood and granite. Many of the interesting village customs have survived.

Burgo de Osma

Burgo de Osma

The Villa was declared of special cultural interest due to the historical importance of its monuments: the Cathedral, the Plaza Mayor, the Walls and the Calle Mayor, where you get the feeling that you can get to know the local way of life. Its plaza Mayor is fantastic and so is its imposing cathedral

Sepulveda

Sepulveda

Sepulveda is a beautiful Segovian town that offers the opportunity to enjoy not just the town, but also great trekking opportunities in the natural reservoir of Hoces del Duraton (home to many vulture families). As part of the Hoces del Duraton you will also be able to enjoy La Ermita de San Frutos and its fantastic scenery

Pedraza, segovia, Castilla Leon

Pedraza

A walled village where cars are not permitted, Pedraza, located at 40 minutes drive from Segovia, is said to be the birthplace of the Emperor Traian himself! and is one of the towns in Segovia and near Madrid with a highly individual character.

La Granja de San Ildefonso

Located in the province of Segovia, just 15 minutes drive from the city of Segovia (a Unesco heritage site) La Granja de San Ildefonso is one of the royal palaces in Spain near Madrid. Its gardens and fountains make it look like the Spanish version of Versailles.
