We highlight a few of the places to eat in Carrion de los Condes. The restaurant Las Vigas offers carefully-crafted Castilian cuisine in a very special atmosphere: its dining rooms occupy the spaces of the refectory and attic of the old Monastery of San Zoilo. The restaurant at the hostel La Carte offers a traveler’s menu and a daily menu. One of their specialties is roast lamb. We recommend the morcilla (blood sausage) and the lamb at a restaurant with the right quality-price ratio.

At the Plaza Mayor de Villalcázar in Sirga (5km away), there is the Mesón de Villasirga, which opened in 1965 to serve travelers and is located in an old 17th-century building; it’s possible to have an authentic medieval dinner in the old style, in which a loaf of bread is used as a dish on top of which food is served. Their specialty? The churro lamb. The Castilian soup is also a good option, recognized as perfectly authentic by our community of travelers. In 1984 the owner, Pablo Payo, opened another nearby establishment, Mesón de los Templarios, apt for large celebrations. Both restaurants prepare traditional Castilian cuisine, and their star dish is also the roasted churro lamb as well as the homemade morcilla. Eating in Carrion de los Condes could be a total medieval adventure.
