CUÉLLAR

Una villa contada en tres culturas A villa told in three cultures

Where the Castilian plain becomes more immense than ever and its horizon is only broken from time to time by the needles of the churches of the villages or by the suggestive pine forests, suddenly a walled citadel of medieval airs presided over a hill is drawn for a resounding castle, a hamlet of steep streets and suggestive airs that invite to be strolled that today shows the march of Historic Artistic Ensemble. Cuéllar was the cradle of kings, headquarters of Castilian Courts, scene of illustrious novels of Spanish literature, exporter of excellent wool to manufacture the flamenco cloths and, above all, a model of something that is so popular today: tolerance, well, in the Middle Ages, Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities lived together here, placing the town as a reference meeting point. Walking through the streets of Cuéllar is soaking in serenity, it is letting the imagination fly through a story written with different graphics, just before preparing the senses to contemplate the overwhelming magnificence of the castle of the Dukes of Albuquerque and whose origin dates back to the 12th century. At this same time, the Mudejar architecture was very intense, making the town the most important focus of expression in the entire region. The church of San Martín houses the Mudéjar Art Interpretation Center, an essential point of interest to know the magnitude of other beautiful examples such as the San Basilio arch, the San Andrés church, the San Miguel church and the San Esteban church. Another attractive feature is the parties and celebrations, highlighting the Encierros de Cuéllar, considered the oldest in Spain to be documented in 1215 and have given the town international fame. But Cuéllar is much more, it is a catalog of material and intangible heritage of the highest cultural value, it is high-flying gastronomy, it is nature... Cuéllar is infinite horizons. www.cuellar.es
