  2. 2. Parador de Soria 1st Day, Sunday Recommendations: The quality of the wines from this region, which encompasses four provinces – Soria, Burgos, Segovia and Valladolid – is joined by its many tourist attractions, as well as the cultural and artistic wealth of each of its towns. Following a route from east to west, beginning in the province of Soria, highlights include San Esteban de Gormaz, through which the Douro River passes, watering the fertile meadows and lands along its banks. Nearby is the town of Atauta, famous for having the best preserved group of traditional wineries on the entire Ribera del Duero route. No less attractive are those preserved in Langa de Duero, which has been declared an area of historic and artistic importance. The hillside on which Castillejo de Robledo castle stands is populated by presses, and the incalculable beauty of its parish church is a wonderful surprise along the route. Parador de Lerma 2nd Day, Monday Recommendations: The De la Vid Monastery marks the beginning of the lands of the Ribera del Duero region in Burgos. A belfry over 30 meters in height is the first sight visitors get of the monastery. Before entering Aranda de Duero, we recommend first visiting the town of Peñaranda de Duero. This strategic point along the Douro River welcomes travellers with its proud castle, the palace of the Zúñiga and Avellaneda families and the collegiate church. The headquarters of the regulatory council for the Ribera del Duero denominación de origen is located in Roa. The vicissitudes of history have caused this town to lose a great many of its palaces and churches, evidence of the wealth of an era. However, well worth a visit are the ex-collegiate church of Santa María and the former church of San Sebastián. Parador de Tordesillas 3rd Day, Tuesday Recommendations: We are now in the province of Valladolid, and as the river passes through the town of Peñafiel it becomes broader, its agricultural boundaries expanding. The town’s vernacular architecture shows its connection to wine, as does the enormous castle, today home to the Provincial Wine Museum (Museo Provincial del Vino). Cotarro de San Pedro, a lovely hill populated by wineries, indicates that we are approachingTaller Projectes Oci- NIF A-63405468 GC - 1138 Pesquera de Duero, a town long linked to wine production. Valbuena de Duero, home to the prestigious Vega Sicilia winery, among others, and Santa María de Valbuena Monastery are the highlights of the last stage of the route through the province of Valladolid. Its lands bathed by the waters of the Douro, the monastery, permanent headquarters of the Ages of Man Foundation (Fundación de las Edades del Hombre), possesses a dazzling beauty. Along this route lies the Riaza River Gorge natural area, between the town limits of Montejo de la Vega de la Serrezuela, Maderuelo and Valdevacas de Montejo. Tel.: +34/93-317 19 09, mail: 2
