What to do in its surroundings?
A few kilometers you can enjoy one of the most beautiful natural landscapes, which is given by the Agadón river pass, where even the most amateurs can fish. The mountain that surrounds us finishes completing this frame that, together with the chestnut forests, create a postcard view.
If you decide to move to Ciudad Rodrigo, less than 20 kilometers away, you can visit the Miróbriga, located between the Sierra de Francia and the Arribes del Duero, very close to the border with Portugal. Do not miss this area because it keeps in its interior, many points of interest and has been declared an Artistic Historic Site.
We could highlight, among these points, the Cathedral of Santa María and the wall, both built by order of Fernando II.
The Town Hall and the castle, demolished and rebuilt several times, were also part of the mandate of this king.
If you choose the natural part, move about 40 kilometers and you can contemplate the imposing Sierra de Francia and its interior spaces plagaos of valleys, rivers and forests.
Due to its great extension, the populations of La Alberca, San Martín del Castañar, with an old Visigoth village in its territory and Miranda del Castañar, are part of it, in an old hill. All three have been declared an Artistic Historic Site.
Another natural area worth visiting is the Arribes del Duero Natural Park, 70 kilometers from our town. Here you will find the path of the Douro River and its irregular flow that has left spaces full of vegetation in which the areas of dams and reservoirs are mixed.
