Oropesa, Toledo

Oropesa - Toledo, Spain
Avenida Castilla-La Mancha, Oropesa, Spain 45560Map
Neighborhood: Outside Toledo

You'll see the impressive 12th century castle and its adjoining 16th century palace, now a Parador de Turismo from a long way away. Visit the luxury hotel and enjoy the views from the hill over to the majestic Sierra de Gredos in the distance. In the town itself, you'll find a restoration workshop where people work with stone, iron and wood. Walk round the cobbled streets to see the church of the Asunción and numerous noble mansions. The best local dishes are the sausages, black pudding, and game. A particularly good time to visit is during September 8-10 and 18-19, when festivals are held. The interesting village of Puente del Arzobispo is just 4km away. The public bus from Toledo leaves from Avenida Castilla-La Mancha for the 112km journey. For times, telephone +34 925 215 854.
