Peñafiel is a nice little village with a beautiful middle age castle on the top. It is well maintained and it also encloses the local wine museum sponsored by Protos, the famous local wine producer. The castle is quite small and the tour will last...More

Looks better from a distance, and the tour isn't worth paying for, especially as it is only available in Spanish. We didn't bother with the wine museum, having booked to visit several bodegas whilst in the area.

The castle appears nice, however all history, direction and tales were done only in Spanish. I understand that I was in Spain, but to stand for 3-5 minutes not understanding explanations about the castle and its content was a waste of time. If you don't...More

A little bit of Culture and History after lunch and winery visit. Beautiful views and entire village can be seen from the Castle. An interesting Wine Museum can be visited as well.
