Pedraza was a tour stop on the way to Segovia and we didn't quite know what to expect, but it was just beautiful .... a quiet, peaceful town, devoid of tourists with buildings that have been lovingly restored by their owners. Tourists do not know what they are missing by not visiting here! A nice little museum area showing old artefacts as the owners have excavated around the homes was very interesting. Unfortunately the castle was closed but it was just wonderful wandering around the old town and looking at the buildings. The views across the valley from the top of the town were exceptional. Stopped for a drink in the cafe in Plaza Mayor and they showed us where the posts were tied up to turn the plaza into a bullring for special occasions. Visited a furniture shop where they still do a lot of the work by hand and produced wonderfully crafted furniture. One of the highlights of our visit to Spain!!

I went to Pedraza with some family friends that were friends with my grandfather. Apparently, my grandfather used to hang out in Pedraza. It is a small town but beautiful at that. It has an extreme sense of community - everyone knows everyone. I loved seeing this quieter version of Spain instead of just bouncing from city to city. I would suggest it if you have a car and want to check out some beautiful views! (Went June 2014).

In the charming town of Pedraza this main square contains most of the elements of its singularity. Porticoes, old houses , pebbles and cobblestones floors, a couple of bars and old wooden doors. It is ample and inviting although not very alive in week days but fairly busy on week ends with visitors. The square communicates through a quaint passageway with a small square with a small yard and where the main restaurant in town is housed.

It looks like a set but not, it's real. Terrific. Very impressive. Every wall is a piece of history. Fortunately, it has tried to maintain the character with the building restorations. The most interesting; the porticoed facades of the plaza and the restored church, which (it couldn't be otherwise), has its stork's nest in the tower.

An amazing old walled city, with a castle, just gorgeous. So lovely to be stay overnight here, our only experience out of a major town/city in Spain, and to see all the stars of the northern hemisphere.

Again, these town squares are not Disneyland but have character and more details than you can absorb in a single visit. Pedraza is a centuries old town built on top of a hill with only one way to get in or out of it.....talk about cool! Plaza Mayor is enjoyable to walk around it and sit outside the many bars around it to have something to drink and soak up the place.

Plaza Mayor de Pedraza.

When we arrived on to the “Plaza Mayor”, we could not see the location as it is normally, this because it was filled with a wooden so called arena for what we are suppose “Bull fighting”. But the plaza seems to be very well conserved and the plaza where allot of events are taking place, we loved our stop over, and would say please go for a visit in the week, than you probably will see the Plaza as she really is.

Going back in time, this square is surrounded by very old houses and buildings. There are many original details left.

Hard to describe it's like a maze of little cobbled pathways and small roads. Easy to get lost.
Houses little artisan shops. Plenty of cafes and restaurants. Very old and traditional. There are still the original town squares where the people would congregate There are plaques spotted around which explain some of the history. Lovely visit a few spent away from the busy modern world we live in.
