Visit to the museum of giants and streets of Puebla de Sanabria

The whole of the town constitutes an authentic fortified bastion through which countless battles have passed. Its border condition has made it a Villa that is currently declared a HISTORIC-ARTISTIC COMPLEX.

As soon as we cross the river and enter what today constitutes the Center of the population, we see a steep street, in the vicinity of which are the most austere facades.

The houses of this town still keep the memory of former moments of splendor. These constructions show a great ornamental wealth. The coats of arms appear on its facades, large profusely contoured modillions support the eaves and some of the most beautiful balconies in the Region. The corridors are wide and the galleries are almost always glazed. In addition, the ironwork works further embellish these already attractive constructions.

A good part of the Walls that protected all this HISTORICAL-ARTISTIC COMPLEX are still preserved from which unparalleled views of our Region are contemplated.
