  • Advice to stop at this place and learn about its history. the first time I went to this place I only noticed the channel but I never imagined his story!

  • The Canal de Castilla has an interesting and entertaining history, so can be seen with different eyes if know it a little bit before approaching him. It was the great work of engineering of the Spanish enlightened and its realization served out of backwardness and poverty to interior land poorly communicated, lacking in resources to transport its production to others. Built since the mid-18th century and the first third of the nineteenth, its commissioning enabled the birth of other industries - such as the flour mills and hydraulic - in the vicinity of its runway. You can enjoy the most spectacular Canal basin in Medina de Rioseco. It is the end point of the branch of fields. In the dock you will find the old flour factory San Antonio - now a museum which is well worth a visit - and to the other side of the exclusero House - restored and inhabited - and the old warehouses of the channel, mostly rehabilitated and exploited for use tourist. At the end is a crumbling warehouse which will help you to get the idea of how they are the hundreds of buildings that the suitable channel all the way. Excluseros, warehouses, stables, old sales houses... So many that, unfortunately, most are in a State of semiabandono or already destroyed. The Canal de Castilla has an incredible and beautiful history, if you have interest in learning about it the best book about him-Castilla channel - Raúl Guerra Garrido wrote it. Today already recognized as the big driver of the enhancement of this ancient, forgotten and Titanic work of engineering.
