Located on the foothills of the Cebollera mountain range is Valdeavellano de Tera, a village characterised by its stone and ashlar houses that are a perfect example of the typical architecture of the area El Valle.

 

Out of its many touristic attractions, it is worth mentioning the following buildings:

 

Espinillas Fort (Castro de las Espinillas): a circular fort that dates back to the Iron Ages. It was later conquered by the Romans, as we can see by the coins and other remains found in the area. It is said that the fort was one of the Roman camps that were set up to siege Numancia.

 

The church of Nuestra Señora de la Paz: a 15th-century Gothic temple built over a primitive 13th-century Romanesque church. Inside is one of the most impressive altarpieces in the entire province and is said to be the work of Tierno el Mozo.

 

The chapel of Nuestra Señora de las Espinillas (Our Lady of Thorns), name that comes from the appearance of the Virgin in front of a bush with thorns.

 

The learning centre Aula Activa Espacio Valdeavellano used to be the old Guardia Civil station. In 2005 it was transformed into a permanent training centre for civil workers. The modern facilities are used not only to train civil workers, but also some local initiatives take place here like film nights, art exhibitions, reunions, concerts or other thematic events.

 

The valley where Valdeavellano de Tera is located is known for its dairy products, especially its butter, so here you can go on the Butter Valley Route (Ruta del Valle de la Mantequilla) that passes through the villages Valdeavellano de Tera, Molinos de Razón and Sotillo del Rincón, where they have touristic and ethnologic performances. Other performances they have are based on the old washing techniques done in fountains and paths in Valdeavellano de Tera, schools in Molinos de Razón and museums such as the Interpretation Centre of the Butter Valley, the accommodation of the Sotillo washhouse and the restoration of the bridge of La Lobera that between Molinos and Sotillo. This route helps us understand how people in this area used to live not so long ago.
