  2. 2. Recommendations: The Rueda wine region, while producing whites, rosés and reds, has made a place for itself in the world of Spanish wine thanks to the Verdejo white grape variety, which gives its whites their powerful aroma. The town of Rueda is the center of local wine-making activity. Nearby is Medina del Campo, the city of fairs whose golden age was during the Middle Ages. Of special note is De la Mota Castle. Tordesillas is home to the Toro Vega festival, and her Treaty Houses (Casas del Tratado) witnessed the signing of the document which divided the New World into two parts. The town offers much for visitors to discover. Nearby lies the Riberas de Castronuño-Vegas del Duero natural area. Parador de Zamora 2nd Day, Monday Recommendations: The Toro wine region is located within the area of Zamora divided by the Douro River, leaving the Land of Bread (Tierra del Pan) to the north, and to the south, the Land of Wine. The importance of vineyards can be seen in such Zamora towns as Venialbo, El Pego, Valdefinjas and Sanzoles, among others. They have preserved excellent examples of vernacular winery architecture, evidence of the ancient connection to this activity throughout the entire region. Toro is the capital of this wine-producing region, and the location of its regulatory council. All the hillsides along the route of the mighty river are populated by numerous vineyards. The town has preserved part of its castle, as well as the Corredera and Arco del Reloj gates, dating from the 18 th century. To all this must be added the innumerable other attractions in the city of Zamora, a town of great beauty and many monuments. Parador de Salamanca 3rd Day, Tuesday Recommendations: Following a few days discovering the world of wine, stroll to the center of the baroque 18th-century Main Square (Plaza Mayor), look around and allow yourself to be seduced by its beauty and harmony.
