Hidden within the impressive canyons
in 'Las Hoces del Río Duratón'
National Park, Sepúlveda is one
of the prettiest villages in the province
of Segovia with just one thousand inhabitants.
The village has narrow streets, restaurants, local crafts shops and museum.
Easily accessible from Segovia, Madrid and Valladolid, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting, Sepúlveda is an ideal location to spend a day or even a weekend. There are a number of accommodation possibilities from small hotels to rural houses (casas rurales). The village still retains its authenticity and so far remains unaffected by tourism.
Sepúlveda is home to the largest
colony of vultures in Europe. Almost
600 pairs of these birds have found
a home in its rocky canyons which provide
an ideal habitat for them to build their
nests in. The birds form part of the
attractive panoramic views and can be
seen flying over the village.
