  • In Villaseca, near Sepúlveda (Segovia), is located this beautiful enclave natural that has with an important colony of vultures. Recommended the walk to the Hermitage of San Frutos from the parking area. Access by car to the parking lot is a dirt track, typically a natural park.

  • It is always a pleasure, a place so beautiful and so close to Madrid. The spectacular gastronomy... The Hermitage of san Frutos overlooking their sickles is truly a privilege. The flight of vultures a luxury.

  • Simply wonderful. There is a part of the route that, from January to July, you need permission, because the vultures are raising their young, but still, very highly recommended. Nice walk of about 2 hours, easy to perform.

  • Amazing natural park with lots of vultures nesting on the cliffs. We did a canoe route with a local guide (in Spanish only) that was just amazing.
  • A spectacular gorge and river running through this beautiful natural park. Lots of trails for walking which take you up and close to the vultures which nest on the cliff tops. Also great for picnics alongside the river in spring and summer.
  • Great landscape with a lot of wildlife
  • Muy bonito, totalmente recomendable su visita.
  • Beautiful scenario and monastery
