We are located in the Sierra de la Demanda, near the spring where the Arlanza River is born. Our location allows us to enjoy wonderful routes through a variety of natural spaces. Historically we are in the "Cradle of Castilla", the home of the Count Fernan Gonzalez and El Cid Campeador.
The fossil trees, the pool of Neila, the medieval town of Covarrubias, the Monastery of Silos, Atapuerca, The Canyon of Rio Lobos or the Museum of the Dinosaurs, These are some of the nearby routes where one can wander about, before coming back at the end of the day.
