Court of suitors, princes and kings in the Aragonese border.

This frontier square was a court of pretenders to the throne and princes during its long stage of border splendor (until the personal union of the Catholic Kings). Its medieval appeal is reinforced with urban sculptures, gardens, walks and cultural events related to sculpture.

Plan your stay in Almazán.

You can spend the whole morning exploring the village’s old town, and then stroll through the beautiful gardens with contemporary sculptures and stroll along the Douro River, watching from the bottom of the wall for the morning wall. The rest of the trip can be a day trip to the city of Soria (if you return to Burgos), to Medinaceli (especially if you turn towards Madrid or Zaragoza as you take the road) and Berlanga de Duero and Burgo de Osma (If you return in the direction of Segovia).
