Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Churches
Spain’s largest autonomous region, Castile and León was formed by the union of two ancient kingdoms. Old Castile and the Kingdom of León suffered separations and reunifications several times during the Middle Ages. This region’s wealth of historical attractions includes three cities that are World Heritage Sites. The countryside is punctuated by archeological sites, Roman mines, Gothic churches, and tiny villages established many centuries ago. Each colorful community has its own distinctive character, culture, and art. Take a trip to some of the area's award-winning wineries, many of which offer tours.
