Awesome mini village where you can eat the famous "Cocido Maragato", a delicious Spanish soup with chickpea, beef, chicken, pork, vegetables, chorizo, etc. There are several restaurants, but we went to Entrepiedras, full recommended.

There is a parking at the entrance so that the views aren't spoiled by parked cars. But apparently the parking is only for those who can read, as there were a bunch of cars here and there that spoiled the views and most of the pics.

We hiked through this town and we were happy that we did. It is so charming with all of the old stone houses. Very cute.

Very small town, aroun 100 people. Everything is stone. You need to park outside and walk your way through it. There are several restaurants that serve mostly Cocido Maragato (broth with chick peas and meats). Wear comfortable shoes.
