We stopped here because of the reviews and to have lunch. Little did we know that the restaurants are closed on Mondays. Pretty but we didn't see another soul in the place.

Awesome mini village where you can eat the famous "Cocido Maragato", a delicious Spanish soup with chickpea, beef, chicken, pork, vegetables, chorizo, etc. There are several restaurants, but we went to Entrepiedras, full recommended.

We hiked through this town and we were happy that we did. It is so charming with all of the old stone houses. Very cute.

Very small town, aroun 100 people. Everything is stone. You need to park outside and walk your way through it. There are several restaurants that serve mostly Cocido Maragato (broth with chick peas and meats). Wear comfortable shoes.
