An unknown medieval village in the province of Soria
Oct 2016 • Couples
I visited Rello some years ago but little has changed today. It is a crumbling village with a crumbling castle, sitting on a spur formed by a bend in a tributary of the Duero. There are only 19 people living there so it is more like a large family than a village. The elevation is 1069 meters so it is very cold in the winter. I can't imagine life here in January. You can reach Rello either from Berlanga de Duero on SO152 and SO 132 or from Almazán taking CL 101 and SO 132. The approach is dramatic: the road runs through a green and pleasant valley and suddenly Rello looms grim and stark high above you. The road climbs up to the main wall, crossing the rocky spur from side to side. You leave your car outside and walk into the village. There is little information on the date of this castle and the walls or whether it served the Muslims as a strongpoint. Whatever its history, Rello is a most unusual survival. I have only visited one other village like this, Urueña, west of Valladolid. But, other than the view and a stroll through the ancient streets, there is little reason to spend much time here. The small restaurant La Muralla would be a good place to have a drink or a needed cup of coffee.

A ruin but what views
Jul 2012 • Couples
A bit of a trek but whatever route you take will take in some wonderful views. The village is perched upon a promentory and surounded by walls atop of cliffs, very dramatic. Like going back in time. The May pole like column as you enter the gate is actually a very very old (16th C) cannon.
