LIVE HISTORY

 

This region is a mixture of evergreen forests that combine with seasonal croplands giving this everlasting though ever-changing land life and aroma.

 

It is the natural habitat for many animals that roam among the forests filled with mushrooms during autumn.

 

A strong tradition of resin extraction has not only left scars on the tree trunks but also very important marks on Almazán’s traditions and culture that can be seen in Matamala de Almazán, Tardelcuende and Quintana Redonda.

 

Almazán breathes history. This town is the product of its multicultural history that has left its mark not only on the architecture but also on its customs. Almazán was the first frontline between the Muslim and Christian worlds, and later it was the place where the kingdoms of Aragon and Castile disputed. Thanks to the Catholic Monarchs, Almazán came into the historical spotlight due to the establishment of the Court. There you can see three monumental gates from its medieval wall as well as a Romanesque masterpiece, the church of San Miguel, that shares the spotlight with the Gothic-Renaissance Palace of Altamira in the town square.

 

About 15 kilometres away from the town is Morón de Almazán, where you can see its 15th-century Renaissance-style square and the Palace of Mendoza y los Ríos with the Provincial Folk Costume Museum.

 

Many are the Romanesque elements that can be seen throughout the region in villages such as Perdices, Barca, Nepas, Nolay, Escobosa, Viana de Duero, Villasayas, Maján and Adradas.
