A bit of a hair raising journey to get there, but well worth it. We went earlyish in the day, and had the village to ourselves. Went for a lovely walk in the mountains and returned to the village for a welcome drink. All very picturesque and well kept.

This is truly a hidden gem tucked away in the mountains of el Bierzo. It is rated one of the most beautiful towns/pueblos in Spain and a must visit.

What a gorgeous place and worth the effort to get there! If you want a quiet place to get away from it all, this is it! The food in local restaurants is excellent and the solitude is really relaxing!

Small village high up the mountains.
our main reason for going was the valley of silence, a pleasant walk though the woods across the river and up the first part of the mountainside.
well named as all that one can hear is the river below the path.
The village itself was quiet but has at least two bars, one of which is attached to a hotel.Unfortunately we had booked another hotel for the night otherwise it would have been good to wake up on the mountain.

There is a beautiful but plain church with faded frescoes and a dethatched tower..

The road up is very narrow and, if like we did, you take the wrong turn leads to a road which has the mountain on one side and nothing on the other.
Would not have missed this place for the world and it is essential to take the path slightly above the village and look down onto the slate roves of the houses.
