    No se si es este el sitio más indicado para poner aquí este comentario , pero quiero hablar un poco sobre "Las Edades del Hombre"
    En Castilla León , todos los años , de primavera al otoño , en una ciudad de Castilla, que tiene una gran herencia artística religiosa, se hace una exposición sobre un tema determinado y se presentan obras de arte de toda Castilla relacionadas con dicho tema en unos marcos impresionantes
    Este año se ha celebrado en el monasterio benedictino de San Salvador, en Oña (Burgos) y el tema ha sido : Monacatus ( Solitario ) .
    Ha estado dedicada a la vida monástica en la Iglesia Católica y en ella se repasa este tipo de vida cristiana
    El año 2013 se celebrarán las Edades del Hombre en Arévalo ( Avila )

    I do not know if this is the most appropriate place to put this comment here, but I want to talk a little about "The Ages of Man"
    In Castilla León, every year, from spring to autumn, in a city of Castilla, which has great religious art heritage, makes a presentation on a given topic and present artworks throughout Castile related to that topic in an impressive place ( Church , monastery...)
    This year it was held in the Benedictine monastery of San Salvador, in Oña (Burgos) and the theme was Monacatus (Solitaire).
    It has been dedicated to the monastic life in the Catholic Church and makes a review in the art of this type of Christian life
    The year 2013 will be held in the Ages of Man Arévalo (Avila)

    See my Santo Domingo de Silos page for more details about this lovely village, its monastery, and its Gregorian music lol

    The most celebrated monument in Santo Domingo de Silos is the Romanesque monastery, which has become also famous for its Cd of Gregorian music.

    Is one of the oldest in Spain, created on the 12th century.

    This city is between Bilbao and Madrid, close to the main road.

    has an incredible amount of Churches, convents and historical buildings.

    I would suggest also to stop at Its Parador a jewel in Paradores and one of the new ones.

    This villa is located next to the Arlanza river, and was declared of National Historical and Artistic importance.

    It is a charming village with medieval flavour that still conserves its spirit.

    Still unknown even for Spanish people.

    Caleruega

    Caleruega is at the south of Burgos Province, at the Ribera del Duero region, famous for its wines.

    An area with lots of history as it was a natural frontier between the Christian kingdoms of the north and the Moslems of the south in the far-off days of the Reconquest.

    You can find lots of churches, convents and monasteries.

    Aranda de Duero

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The river Duero gives its name. It is famous for its Lamb (Lechazo, unique in the area and the best in the world hehehehe) and its wines (Denomination of origin Ribera de Duero) What can I say, if you buy a bottle from there, check if they say Castrillo de la Vega, maybe you are drinking wine of my family lol

    Aranda de Duero was founded in mid-10th century to defend the natural limit of the river Duero. The 15 and 16th centuries were the best ages of this city.

    The churches Santa Maria and San Juan deserve the visit.

    Puentedey ... who said Castile is flat?

    The north of the province of Burgos is plenty of mountains, forests, old castles, medieval towns ... for example, visit my page on Frías.
