Castilla y León, Spain

We are exactly where everything began thousands of years ago: Castilla y León, the land where Spain was born. This northern region is as old, sacred and historical as you can imagine. The most spectacular Spanish castles remain here, surrounded by medieval villages like those from the fairy-tales. You can visit Valladolid, the capital city; Salamanca, the university students’ home; Ávila and its ancient walls; the medieval Segovia or the spectacular cathedrals of León and Burgos.

If you come here you will have the chance to admire the Roman Aqueduct of Segovia, one of the best preserved in Europe and visit the Alcazar of Segovia, which inspired the Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Disneyland. You should not leave Segovia without visiting Cuéllar, located in a natural environment. It is a medieval villa with a magnificent castle, which belonged to Isabella the Catholic surrounded by a huge wall. If you come you will go back in time to an era of glorious kings and conquests. Furthermore, in 2017 Cuéllar will be headquarters of The Ages of Man, a famous event in Spain in which visitors can admire the ancient sacred Spanish art of the region and the country.

Food and wine

Castilla y León is traditionally known by its gastronomy. The nine provinces of this region share some tastes and preparations, bur each one has its own typical products and dishes. Gastronomy is like a sacred ritual in Castilla y León and there are references to its cooking in old and famous books like “Cantar de Mio Cid”. The most traditional dishes are roast lamb and suckling pig. In Segovia we are known by our pork dishes, but if you are looking for a place to eat in Segovia, in La Brasería de Cuéllar you can taste the best ox meat in the country. Castilla y León is the most recommended region of Spain to discover the richness of Spanish food.

Castilla y León is also a perfect region to do wine tours in Spain because the best appellations of the country were born there. As a result of the weather conditions and the quality of the Tempranillo grapes, wines take extraordinary colors and unique flavors. This makes the Spanish wine one of the bests in the world: Ribera del Duero, Vega Sicilia, Toro or Cigales are some examples.
