“Beautiful waterfalls”

Ranked #3 of 79 things to do in Burgos
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 6, 2011

I agree with the previous Spanish review, this village is lovely, and one of my favourites in this area. It has lovely winding streets crisscrossing the stream that runs (and falls) through it, coming out of the rockface at the top of the village. You can walk up above the cave and get a great view over the village and the canyon which it is in, with its rock formations. There are a few souvenir shops and bars with raciones, only a few are open all year (its fairly deserted outside of summer). There's also some interesting moorish architecture and windows. The only thing is that parking is pretty impossible down on the road on busy days. Something else we discovered just a couple of weeks ago near here is a walk just a bit further up the gorge just into Cantabria in a village called Villaescusa de Ebro. If you walk down river from the bridge (along the signposted GR99), after a few kilometres you reach the most incredible waterfall called El Tobazo, there's an info board and you can climb right up to the waterfalls different layers (it is possible to get right to the top where the water come straight out of the limestone cliff face), it's a bit of a climb, and I'm not sure if it dries up in summer, but we went in December and it was really spectacular! You can get a pdf guide for it (in Spanish) here: http://www.valderredible.es/site/rutas/R04.pdf Just something else to consider if you're visiting here!
