A VISIT TO THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL

Zamora

We begin with the capital of our province, Zamora. This small city can be easily covered in one day and can even be combined with a visit to another town on the way. On the banks of the Duero River, the city of Zamora has a spectacular castle and cathedral, both in the old part of the city. The visit is completed with the Plaza Mayor, the city walls and El Puente de Piedra, from where you will not only enjoy this beautiful bridge with centuries of history, but also privileged views of the Duero and the surrounding area.

And to round off the day, what better way to enjoy its wide range of gastronomic offerings, with products such as lamb, cheeses, pulses, sausages and, of course, wines.
