This town in the province of Burgos belongs to the route known as "Camino del Cid" It is, therefore, a place full of history, rest, beautiful scenery, good food and a wonderful Benedictine Abbey which acts as a spiritual and musical tourist attraction all over the world. After visiting the Romanesque cloister, the pharmacy, the museum and thetemporary exhibitions that host its walls, we can not leave without going to the liturgical services in wich Gregorian chant is used as a form of sung prayer.

After your visit to Santo Domingo de Silos, at just three kilometres away, you can enjoy a stunning landscape in the Natural Park of Yecla, a deep and narrow gorge of steep cliffs, with a wide variety of ways. A narrow gorge, modelled in limestone materials, pierced by the action of the waters of the stream “El Cauce” for millions of years. At the summit of the pass, you can see some fantastic nests made by vultures.
