    New part

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Around the original historic centre a new town has been built, where most of the daily life of locals happen. The old narrow stone streets are mainly for tourists now, so if you wanna feel the pulse of real life you better take a walk around the lower part of Puebla de Sanabria, accross the river.

    The Castle

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The castle which is on the very top was built in the 15th century by the 4th count of Benavente. It has been recently restored and houses now the Cultural Hall of the town, although it can be visited at certain times. We didn't beacuse it was closed for New Year, but if you ask at the nearbu Tourist Info they can give you the current opening times.

    San Cayetano church

    This little church located just beside the main church, at the left, is newer (18th century) but its main facade is beautifully ornamented in baroque style. It is normally closed but you can ask for schedules at the tourist info.

    Nuestra Senora del Azogue

    This 12th century romanic church is located in the main square, and is easy to distinguish for its bell tower and clock (quite noisy if you sleep in the nearby hotel BTW). This is the main church in town, where the main celebrations take place. Inside, there are tombstones all around the place on the floor.

    Old part

    The old part is located on top of the rock, it is easy to see when you arrive by car, and it gives the village its characteristic "skyline" with all those churches and the castle.

    The Town Hall, with its characteristic facade, is located in the main square too, and it was built in the 15th century. By its left side you will find the TOURIST INFO office.
