  • It is curious to visit somewhere, all the streets and houses are paved and they form an unusual set in Castile, where it is easier to find adobe in ancient buildings or brick. To stop are in the doors, with different styles, all in wood. A site in which deserves the penalty used a time in stroll and enjoy it.

  • The inhabitants of Castrillo traditionally were muleteers. These merchants for producing wine, fish, and many other goods. The houses, calls "houses dolichoderus", are structured depending on that activity, exist large doors for the step of trucks, patios interiors that are the center of organization of the House, blocks, and some large wineries. The village was originally in a different location. It was destroyed by a few floods and was rebuilt in the 16th century in their current location. The muleteers enjoyed great power and influence in the area between the 16th and 19th centuries. The maragata region is situated at a strategic point in the interior of the peninsula and Galicia communications. The own Astorga is today located in the middle of the nacional VI. The maragatos transported inside salted fish brought from the Galician coast, and returning to their land loaded with sausages and dry-farmed products. The decline of this breed began with the arrival of the railroad to Astorga in 1866.

  • Very pretty village a five minute drive from Astorga. It preserves its traditional, very well renovated architecture. Not allowed the passage of cars, there are car parks at the entrance of the village that is full of tourists in high season and weekends. This small village is to stroll and eat typical maragato stew at any of its restaurants.
