Mountain

The north of Palencia, known as the Palentian Mountain Range, is comprised of several districts and valleys. It limits to the west with Leon, to the north with Cantabria, and to the south with Burgos. This is a privileged area with myriad attractions and resources. It is home to the highest peaks in the province - Curavacas, Espigüete and Las Lomas. The Rivers Carrion and Pisuerga, which arise in these mountains, flow to the reservoirs of Camporredondo, Compuerto, Requejada, and Ruesga.

The Fuentes Carrionas route will take you to the highest peaks in the Palencia Mountain Range: Curavacas (2,525 m), Espigüete (2,450 m) and Las Lomas (2,451 m). The area takes its name from the River Carrión, whose source is in Fuentes Carrionas Lagoon. This already mighty river also gets water from the Camporredondo and Compuerto Reservoirs. The diversity of its oak and beech forests, the excellent pastures, and the quantity and quality of its fishing and hunting areas are assured.

The City

A traveller who arrives at a city will always be drawn to the historic centre, its main streets, the monuments pointed out by tourist guides, and novelties sold in shops, hotels, or restaurants. Palencia is, of course, no exception. In addition to the above, the visitors to our city will be amazed by the amount of details that are not included in information leaflets, that is, those which make Palencia far more than just a waypoint in the tourist route. Palencia is a dynamic city that has grown and blossomed with time, just like any other living being. For all of the above, it is chiefly a place for living and enjoying life.

Palencia's geographical location enables both easy access to the city and provides an ideal starting point for day trips to nearby places with spectacular landscapes (Cerro del Otero, dominated by the statue of Christ by Victorio Macho, outdoor observatory at Autilla del Pino, where on a clear day you can see the mountain ranges to the north, which always amaze us with their ever-changing tapestry of colours, or the Viejo mountain, covered with oaks and home to deer, where you can enjoy a pleasant outing in the countryside or a wide variety of sports and outdoor activities) or longer routes to explore the many wonders the province has to offer.
