Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
The village of Castrillo de los Polvazares was one of the main Spanish resistance epicenters during the French conquests. Today, tourists traipse its cobblestone walkways instead of soldiers. Red clay houses with colorfully painted window frames and doors flank the pathways, giving you a glimpse of what 16th-century Spain must have been like. Every building in the village is well preserved; even the paths seem as if they were just laid the day before. Consider a tour on quad bike or horseback. Or, grab a meal at Entrepiedras Restaurant, known for its traditional fare and frequented by visitors and locals alike.
