In the northeast of the province of Segovia, the Duratón River becomes capricious and for millions of years has been dedicated to carving the red sandstone rock to form a unique landscape.

For approximately twenty-five kilometers, the channel runs between vertical cliffs that reach up to one hundred meters, forming meanders and pools of turquoise waters.

This emblematic place, protected under the figure of the Hoces del Río Duratón Natural Park, constitutes an ideal ecosystem for many birds. More than seven hundred pairs of griffon vultures nest on the rocky terraces, making it very easy to contemplate their majestic flight alongside other species such as golden eagles or peregrine falcons.

The natural values ​​are enriched with an interesting historical heritage. One of its references is the hermitage of San Frutos from the 11th century, whose image stands on a promontory formed by one of the most beautiful meanders. The remains of the convent of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de la Hoz which can be reached by boat, caves with engravings from the Bronze Age, the Visigoth hermitage of the Cave of the Seven Altars or the architectural complex of Sepúlveda make up an intimately cultural mosaic linked to the natural environment.
