Tour overview

Castilla y Leon is one of Europe’s largest regions. It is made up of nine provinces – Avila, Burgos, Leon, Palencia, Salamanca, Segovia, Soria, Valladolid and Zamora – and boasts a greater cultural, ethnological and natural heritage than practically any other region in Spain. In addition, it is here that the first traces of the Spanish language can be seen.

Castilla y Leon also possesses much of Spain’s cultural heritage, with more than 300 castles, almost 400 museums housing the artistic, cultural and ethnographic wealth of our region as well as 23,000 archaeological sites. It also has around festivals of international, national and regional tourist interest. Particularly worthy of mention are the Holy Week celebrations, undoubtedly one of the most attractive tourist attractions due to their deeply religious, cultural and traditional nature: Castilla y Leon is the site of no fewer than 8 of the 22 celebrations declared to be of international tourist interest in Spain.

To discover the small and large popular dishes from the gastronomy of Castilla y Leon and the native wines raised in Castilla y Leon lands, the traveler has different food and wine routes that enable knowing the typical dishes of each area, enjoying its taste and getting into the traditions of their people.

Through the viticultural wealth of Castilla y León different routes are presented to discover the areas of this Community in which some of the best wines of Spain are born.

Crossing the Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Cigales in the heart of Castilla, and crossing the lands of El Bierzo or the Arribes, Arlanza or the Sierra de Francia, the traveler appreciates the value of some wines with a vast history, and appreciates from the old fortresses or the Castilian plain a unique and surprising landscape bathed by vineyards.
