Excursions in the province

Salamanca is a province with many faces. To the west of the city we have the Campo Charro, the Dehesa as it is called, with its bull farms. In the south the Sierra de Béjar and Sierra de Francia with their mountain villages. Towards Portugal the region Las Arribes there we find numerous fortresses and the canyon of the Duero river. There are wine routes, fortress routes and visits to bull farms that we can organize. As you can see, there is something for everyone.

de Béjar

Castilla and León

The homepage of the website says “discover the heart of Spain” because this is precisely what the region of Castilla y León is, the heart of this country. From here Spain began to unite as one country in the fourteenth century under the reign of the Catholic Monarchs. 

National heritage

The term ‘national heritage’ refers to the cultural assets that are considered important for the entire country. These can be monuments, historic buildings, archaeological sites, works of art, documents and other objects that have special significance in the history and cultural identity of Spain.
