Welcome to Zamora

This literary province hides in its territory many corners that you cannot miss.

Aware of the beauty of this place, many artists have tried to capture the magic that lives in this place in the poetry from the Middle-Ages. Now you can be the one who can make them come to life in this land, considered a with many historic and artistic heritage sites, such as its cathedral or the city walls.

If there is something to highlight of this place is the landscape, with places such as the banks of the river Duero, which cuts across the whole city, and is crossed by up to five bridges. But you mustn't forget to check out places such as the Lago de Sanabria, a giant water surface that happens to be the largest frozen lake of the whole Iberian Peninsula.
