Palencia information

Surroundings

The capital of the province can act as a starting point for the well-known Romanesque route of Palencia, an itinerary which allows you to see the rich medieval heritage which arose in many cases around the Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela. More than fifty buildings are preserved almost intact, outstanding among which is the monastery of Santa María, in Aguilar de Campoo. In the town of Carrión de los Condes you will find beautiful buildings such as the convent of Santa Clara from the 13th century and the churches of Santiago and Santa María del Camino. Other Romanesque buildings which can be visited on this route are the church of San Martín in Frómista, the church of Santa Eufemia in Olmos de Ojeda or the monastery of Santa María de Mave.

The route also provides the opportunity to enjoy the facilities offered by the Parador de Cervera de Pisuerga, located near the Picos de Europa mountains.
