We have to recognize that at Vuela Viajes we are passionate about rural tourism. In addition, we are delighted that in Spain you can enjoy quality rural tourism. Therefore, if a few days ago we wanted to show you the new 7 Rural Wonders of Spain, today we want to tell you about the 13 towns that next year will add to the list of the organization The Most Beautiful Towns of Spain, thus joining the 44 towns that already they are part of the entity.
Would you like to discover which are these beautiful towns ? Well, you know what you have to do! Do not miss anything that we tell you below!
First of all, we want to talk about Grazalema, a municipality in the province of Cádiz that is located in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. The urban area of this white town has been declared a Historic Site.
We are still in Andalusia to tell you about Capileira, a town located in the Alpujarra Granadina region . It is important to bear in mind that a large part of its municipal area belongs to the Sierra Nevada National Park.
Villanueva de los Infantes, Ciudad Real
From Andalusia we moved to Castilla-La Mancha to talk about Villanueva de los Infantes, which has been declared a Historic Site as it is a monumental town in itself. Life in this place revolves around the Plaza Mayor, from the early seventeenth century.
In Guadalajara we find the town of Hita, which has also been declared a Historic-Artistic Site. Among its most outstanding monuments are the house-museum of the Arcipreste de Hita and the Church of San Pedro.
Miranda del Castañar, Salamanca
We also have to talk about Miranda del Castañar, which is located in the province of Salamanca, in the Sierra de Francia. Here is the oldest bullring in Spain.
In Burgos we find Caleruega, a town whose historical importance lies in being the cradle of Santo Domingo de Guzmán, the founder of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) and the Holy Rosary.
Also in Burgos is Covarrubias, a town that has a well-preserved urban fabric and a wide monumental heritage. The Torreón de Fernán González stands out.
We moved to the province of Soria to talk about Yanguas, a town of pre-Roman origin that stands out for its architecture based on ashlar, masonry, and timber and mud walls. In addition, its stately buildings and the Plaza Mayor are surprising.
