Archaeological site owned by Diputación de Palencia. Roman period. 4th century aD. Asset of Cultural Interest.
Although a 25km detour from the Burgos-Leon motorway, this is one exhibit we are relieved we didn't miss.
Undercover so great as it was raining heavily, the Reception staff spoke English and had a pamphlet in English. They turned the audiovisual presentation in the theatre at the end to English as well.
Map- excellent, Notes-excellent, and the exhibit!!!! THE FINEST WE HAVE SEEN IN Spain, Portugal OR Morocco. The mosaics alone are worth the visit and the 5€ entrance fee, 3€ for OAPs just so reasonable. There is a cafe and a small gift stand.
Well worth a 2 hour visit.

Discover "The Beautiful Stranger", as has been popularly known the Cathedral of San Antolín of Palencia since always. Centuries of history, pieces of art, stories, legends, famous characters... all this and more is what the visitor finds out on its visit to this huge Cathedral that never ceases to let people indifferent and that always amazes to the ones that penetrates inside. Within the Project "The Beautiful Recognized" this sacred temple begins its journey as a center of worship and tourism, aiming the dissemination of this flagship of Palencia´s heritage.
This building has nearly the whole history of Gothic architecture in its fabric. One excepts the earliest Northern French, but everything else is here, even the transition towards the Italian renaissance, and the beginning of the baroque.

This is a lovely, ancient church in the small town of Fromista. It is the finest example of Romanesque in Castille, and dates from 1066. The capitals of the columns are beautifully crafted. They form a narrative of biblical stories. We enjoyed this church forits small, intimate size, and knowing that people have prayed and attended Mass here for nearly 1000 years.

Interesting visit at 3 euros per person. The monastery had been abandoned and reconstruction of the entire edifice including new roofing has brought back to life this interesting site. One or two sections are closed off as the area is also used for a local school and open university studies. There is a lovely tree-lined walk from Aguilar town to the monastery. One should not miss visiting the Puisuegra river walks and the dam (2 km from town). The view from the dam is fascinating especially with the backdrop of the snow-capped Mountains reflected in the water. We were later told the bears have been seen in the forestry area.

Very interesting place to visit, although it is difficult to get there because there is no indication in the city.

I didn't know much about the Canal de Castilla until I sort of stumbled upon it whilst walking the Camino. It's quite an engineering marvel bringing water for irrigation to that region of Spain, but on top of that the walk alongside the canal is pretty and peaceful, and then as you approach Fromista the series of locks which enable the water to drop to a lower level are really quite a sight to see.
If you are not walking the Camino, and are visiting Fromista for other reasons, do yourself a favour and walk out of town a bit and have a look at the Canal.

Once you are guided down the stairs by the guide, you will be shocked to see just how large this cavern is! It's amazing to see the many beautiful formations created because of a simple drip of water (for many years of course!). Absolutely beautiful, and well laid out with proper paths and stairs. Take a coat because it is damp and chilly in the cavern and be sure to wear comfortable shoes with non-slip soles.
