Castilla Y Leon

By Hagrid Thomson Subscribe to RSS | January 30th 2012 | Views:

The largest place in Spain is Castilla Y Leon and it’s also the same in the entire European region. The place is surrounded by mountains. On the east lies the Sistema Iberico, south it’s the Cordillera Central, north is bordered by Cordillera Cantabrica and then there is a river called Duero that is on the side of Portugal. The place came into existence in 1983 by uniting the places Castilla La Vieja and Leon. During the earlier years of Spain history, these two cities had been the most important, where the activities were flourishing like anything. Here you will find a number of monasteries as well as cathedrals, which are still in very good condition.

Not only are there such monasteries and other historical monuments, but you also will be able to spend your vacation visiting a number of beautiful parks and woods around this region.

Burgos is worth visiting at least once for the cathedral that is not only famous, but also built in Gothic style. This is a great attraction and must include in your list of places of visit.
