The Village

 

Castrillo de Los Polvazares is a traditional maragato village and is considered one of most beautiful villages in the country.

The houses and streets are entirely built in the traditional style with local stone. It is in complete harmony with the surrounding landscape. The local stone is grey or beige at heart but because the earth is rich in iron, it also catches warm hues of yellow, red, brown. It contrasts with the doors and windows painted in bright green, red, blue. It sparkles in the Spanish sunlight and often glows at dusk.

There is also the cosy and special Trechuro bar where you can often experience live music and a few restaurants that serve a traditional stew called the “cocido maragato” dish and lovely regional wines. The village is surrounded by nature, with many paths to walk and special places to discover.
