Cudillero, Asturias

Do you like sailing? Then you have to visit the port of Cudillero. The 75 meter high lighthouse towers over the sea and mesmerizes onlookers with its majesty. The colorful houses, the fishing, the landscapes of Cabo Vidio, the Palacio de los Selgas – for a reason the village is known as the “Versailles of Asturias”.

Frías, Burgos

A drawbridge, which dates back to Roman times, once served as a defence for the village. After crossing the rocky moat you reach the unique fortress of Torre del Homenaje, which towers over the valley of Tobalina like a huge lighthouse.

Trillo, Guadalajara

A visit to Trillo is like being immersed in the real culture of the Alcara land. The city is enveloped by the coolness of the crystal Tajo River, which is why the climate is considered “harsh” by some. A walk through the homestead or through the convent of Santa María de Óvila (XII) is an ideal opportunity to explore the history of the village. The amazing waterfall of Cifuentes, more than 15 meters high, was included in the book “Viaje a la Alcarria” by Camilo José Cela. Why do you think?
