A village with water-paths
This is the village of fountains, with a church dedicated to water. Candelario is one of the most beautiful villages with a well-cared-for popular architecture hanging from its balconies, which is surprising when you go through batipuertas - a two-leaf door whose bottom leaf was used as protection against snow and water - and dazzling when you hear the murmur that comes down from the snowfields in the form of water paths.
Candelario is a joy to the senses, a typical mountain village with an interior landscape: the murmur of the current brings pleasure to one's ears, the beautiful popular architecture adapted both to the outline of a steep orography, which almost touches the Vía de la Plata, and a rebel climatology in winter is a delight for one's eyes.
One can also taste the exquisite gastronomy of a town where cured meat prevails.
