Las Merindades region
Las Merindades form a region which spreads over
and occupies the whole northern third of the province of Burgos.
A privileged bio-geographical crossroads where in an almost magical
fashion an inexhaustible succession of mountains, valleys, woods,
rivers, waterfalls, caves and gorges alternate. In short, a seductive
region where the traveller will discover, apart from one of the
largest caves in the world, the highest concentration of hermitages,
castles, Romanesque churches, palaces and ancestral homes in the
whole of Spain.
Las Merindades model the greenest territory in Burgos, at its most northern tip. A place of wonderful landscape where it is very easy to be reunited with the essence of unchanged Nature. An Eden for History and Art lovers and for those in search of new and tempting sensations related to Rural Tourism.
