Valley of Corneja
The name of this valley comes from the River Corneja, whose source is to be found on El Santo hillside. Stretching out for some 40 kilometres, it is crossed by both the Corneja and Tormes rivers. This fertile valley boasts rich meadowlands, leafy oakwoods, hidden villages and the typical mills that for many years could be seen throughout the region.
Villafranca is one of the best-preserved mills and is still in working order, visible from the road between Navacepedilla and Villafranca. It is definitely worth a stop to discover the wealth of history it contains.
This route includes the following sites of interest: the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción in Piedrahita, Los Castillejos Santiago del Collado, the Castle and Collegiate Church of San Martín de Tours in Bonilla de la Sierra, the noble houses with their coats-of-arms, the Church and Chapel of Los Castillejos La Horcajada, the Church of La Aldehuela and the Church of Aldeanueva de Santa Cruz.
