In this part of the river’s course, from Tardajos to Almazán, you can enjoy the beautiful landscape of its abundant and varied flora, with tree species such as holm oak, oak and pine trees, as well as aromatic and medicinal species such as elderflower, mallow, gorse, broom, linden, chamomile, thyme and lavender.

 

Ituero is located on the Douro riverbanks on a great curve that characterises its way through this part of the province. The most notable building is its parochial church devoted to San Pedro, with modest stonework reinforced with ashlar windows and corners.

 

There are Roman-era documents that speak of a village in the area of Casillas, and it is suggested that they speak of Cubo de la Solana. There are remains of a fort with a necropolis in an area known as Los Castillejo that prove that this area was already populated in the Celtiberian period. Some of the buildings worth mentioning are the church of San Martín de Tours (1710), the Palace of the Counts of Gómara (from the 17th century) and the chapel of Nuestra Señora de la Solana.

 

In Almarail, the most interesting aspect of the village is Turujalba or Torrejalba which are the remains of a Muslim watchtower that takes you back in history to the period when Muslims dominated this land. Some of the monuments worth mentioning are the church of San Juan Bautista and the chapel of Virgen del Duero.

 

Another interesting aspect you can see here is the ensemble of paintings and sculptures that the locals have helped put together along with altruist painters and sculptors. This was done to make an outdoor museum and one of the most interesting pieces is the mural dedicated to the Transhumance and the Eastern Sorian Royal Drovers’ Road. There is also a bird watching station in Azud de Almarail which is perfect for bird lovers.

 

The most interesting aspect of Viana de Duero is without a doubt the church of San Bartolomé, a Romanesque temple that was built around 1239 although it has had subsequent renovations and additions from the 16th to the 19th century. You can notice the beauty and serenity both outside and in, with the gardens surrounding the church and the atrium where there are benches that imitate Romanesque bas-reliefs and a beautiful fountain.
