Zamora stands on the Ruta de la Plata and is famous for the Romanesque monuments that grace its streets and squares. Nearby are important towns such as La Hiniesta. There are other monumental villages, such as El Perdigón, or pottery centres such as Pereruela. This is an area of vineyards and wine, with rich orchards, the gateway to Zamora, one of the most impressive medieval towns in Castilla y León.
The capital, Zamora, stands to the west of the autonomous region of Castilla y León.
