Rising up on a cleft on the fertile plain of the river Águeda and covered with ivy, this castle has a keep which is an unsurpassable observatory for contemplating the landscapes of Salamanca. It is an ideal enclave to discover the beauty of a splendid natural setting and to admire the rich monumental heritage of Ciudad Rodrigo. After passing through its well cared-for garden, inside detailed period aspects stand out, Castilian furniture, a splendid courtyard and cheerful bedrooms, some with exceptional views. The stone arcades of the dining room inspire admiration, as does the typical Salamanca cooking, which includes a local sausage, the 'farinato', delicious roasts and Iberian hams.
