When you arrive in the Bierzo region, you will no doubt want to visit all those
places that give it its singular character. This is not always an easy task as some
areas are remote and quite difficult to access. In the province of Leon, the Bierzo
region offers an area of unspoilt, spectacular natural beauty.
For those looking for stunning natural landscapes, away from the crowds,
this is the ideal destination and the best place from which to start your journey
of discovery. The region has a strong and diverse gastronomical tradition, so,
while you are there, tuck into the tasty hams, sausages and salamis, the delicious
black pudding with onions and the inimitable ‘botillo’. Other specialities are salted
cod and octopus. You also find a great variety of locally grown fruit and vegetables,
such as apples, cherries, pears, chestnuts and red peppers (delicious grilled). Enjoy!
