No será igual que hace mil años, pero hay momentos que lo parece. Por la soledad, lo agreste de los riscos, el río serpenteando en el fondo del cañón que labró durante siglos de siglos, el vuelo mages... read more »It won't be like that thousand years ago, but there are times that seems it. By loneliness, of the cliffs, the river snaking in the bottom of the Canyon that fashioned for centuries of centuries, flying hundreds of vultures of the largest colony of Europe majestic... The Hermitage of San Frutos links history and legend. And coincide with a bus of visitors can be bad luck... but avoiding massive access, will also prevent this effect "Parade" of tourists or curious. Anyway, it is easy to win the peace in a few steps. Essential binoculars and camera. A good Footwear and want to explore a unique, well-preserved landscape despite the dammed waters. We ate at the same point where starts the road to San Frutos from Villaseca, on the other side of the road. There is BBQ the shrike, lost in nowhere, excellent menus - lamb, but also knuckle or all sorts of delicacies from creed, roast potatoes, cake rich of San Frutos - and very reasonable prices. Excellent value for money (nothing to do with the accounts at Sepulveda scares), local welcoming and friendly and efficient service. Always with a smile.show original

We arrived at the House of the park where you can see a small exhibition for one euro. It is worth. We recommended the route of the grinder, that not is located in Sepulveda. La Tuta are two kilometers to the side of the River, a very quiet place with caves that can be visited, in particular that of the santero. The trip is worthwhile. Ideally a few sandwiches and make camping at one of the small beaches which makes the river. The worst cone always garbage that people leave.show original
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
Beautiful scenario and monastery
BelsayVisit in the surroundings of Sepúlveda, Segovia. The river course passes encased in huge farrallones up to 100 meters that escort the River to give shelter to a huge ornithological richness, including vultures, Egyptian vultures, Golden Eagles and peregrine falcons. But the interest of the visit as well as the natural, historical and artistic. A "must".show original
