Zamora information

Benavente information

Benavente is a prominent town situated in the north of the capital. It was repopulated by King Fernando II, who also awarded it law-codes in the 12th century.

The most representative building in town is the Parador de Turismo Fernando II hotel, which occupies the Caracol Tower, a 16th-century castle with wide segmental miradors and a beautiful Mudejar coffered ceiling in the main section. But there are other attractions for the visitor, such as the church of Santa María de Azogue, in which the doors, some multicoloured Gothic sculptures and several pillars are very interesting; San Juan del Mercado, with its prominent southern door; and the hospital of La Piedad, an old pilgrims' hostel.
