Hotel Tudanca Benavente

Culture and nature at one of the most interesting areas of Castilla y León. We show you a wide variety of activities.


ROUTE OF THE VALLEYS OF BENAVENTE
The natural region of “Benavente y Los Valles” occupies a large area of the northwest of Zamora. It receives its denomination because of the importance in this area of the river valleys, fertilized by the rivers: Tera, Órbigo, Esla. Eria and Cea. These lands, characterized by a gentle orography, are a gift of freshness and vegetation that the local farmer has known how to take advantage of. This dense river network that flows between alluvial plains, meadows, banks and terraces, makes the region a privileged place.

GOTHIC OF LEÓN
The city of Burgos has one of the most harmonious Gothic cathedrals in the world and has therefore been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. When you get there, take the time to contemplate it, as you will have before you a jewel that was built over more than 500 years. You will love its main façade, its six-pointed rose window, its slender towers or its eight statues of the Kings of Castilla. It also has in the interior the bronze tombstone of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (the legendary character known as the “Cid Campeador”) and his wife Doña Jimena. Another anecdote? Legend has it that Napoleon Bonaparte was the last to descend the cathedral’s 16th-century golden stair.

NATURAL PARK “LAKE OF SANABRIA”
The natural region of “Benavente y Los Valles” occupies a large area of the northwest of Zamora. It receives its denomination because of the importance in this area of the river valleys, fertilized by the rivers: Tera, Órbigo, Esla. Eria and Cea. These lands, characterized by a gentle orography, are a gift of freshness and vegetation that the local farmer has known how to take advantage of. This dense river network that flows between alluvial plains, meadows, banks and terraces, makes the region a privileged place.

ROMANESQUE OF ZAMORA
Throughout this Castilian-Leonese province we can find true Romanesque jewels, such as the Collegiate Church of Toro, the Monastery of San Martín de Castañeda, the impressive ruins of the Monastery of Moreruela, the church of the ancient monastery of Santa Marta de Tera, etc. Not in vain has the city of Zamora preserved more than twenty constructions from the 11th and 12th centuries, including its beautiful cathedral. It is undoubtedly the Spanish city with the most Romanesque remains, followed by Segovia. It is precisely this that attracts more visitors to the city.

VILLAFÁFILA LAGOONS NATURAL PARK
In the northeast of the province of Zamora and in the middle of Tierra de Campos, is located the lagoon complex of Villafáfila, which is one of the most important wetlands of the entire north of the peninsula and, undoubtedly, the most significant enclave for waterfowl, steppe birds and migratory birds of Castilla y León. Formed by three main lagoons -Salina Grande, Barillos and Salinas- and another series of smaller wetlands, it is nestled on clay soils around the semiendorréica basin of the Salado River.
