It's a really romantic quaint old village in the mountains of Bierzo, old stone houses with little terraces or balcony in an ancient street and a very old church of the village, an antique gem, but surely difficult to leave there and of all in wintertimes; Nice for a visit in the mountains for a half day walk.

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!
