Castrillo de los Polvazares, Castrillo de los Polvazares

(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
The village of Castrillo de los Polvazares was one of the main Spanish resistance epicenters during the French conquests. Today, tourists traipse its cobblestone walkways instead of soldiers. Red clay houses with colorfully painted window frames and doors flank the pathways, giving you a glimpse of what 16th-century Spain must have been like. Every building in the village is well preserved; even the paths seem as if they were just laid the day before. Consider a tour on quad bike or horseback. Or, grab a meal at Entrepiedras Restaurant, known for its traditional fare and frequented by visitors and locals alike.

  • Charming village and beautiful. The entrance of vehicles is prohibited, except for residents, so you can visit walk and enjoy its stone buildings-all are precious - and that you move in the mind with other centuries. It has several restaurants to eat the famous COCIDO MARAGATO, being able to taste it in any of them, and at similar prices - about €18 menu-, but us after eating at two of them, we recommend Casa Coscolo, which in turn also has hostel for overnight. The entire village is beautiful, including his Church.

  • Idyllic village arriero retained so which to few minutes of Astorga. Any location is ideal to eat a Cocido Maragato; recommended for hungry and people without fear of stomach ache.
