Castilla Leon is the largest region in Spain and it’s littered with enchanting medieval villages, some of the most impressive Gothic cathedrals and historic cities which are like living, outdoor museums.. Known as the magical “land of the castles” – a land which gave birth to the Castilian Spanish language, the legendary hero El Cid Castle in Segovia, El Alcazarand Saint Teresa of Avila.

Walt Disney used Segovia’s fairytale Moorish fortress as the inspiration for his famous Sleeping Beauty castle.
Names such as Segovia and Salamanca are enough in themselves to fire the imagination and these extraordinarily beautiful cities generally surpass the expectations of first time visitors. Together with Avila, these cities have earned World Heritage status along with the Santiago Way – the famous pilgrims’ trail which traverses Castilla Leon en route to the Galician capital of Santiago de Compostela.
