Calle Balborraz. Zamora
Río Duero en Zamora
Located in the Castile-León region in the northern part of the interior of Spain. Zamora is a land of contrasting landscapes, and one of its most spectacular mountain areas is to be found in the Lago de Sanabria Nature Reserve. Zamora's cultural heritage derives from its role as part of several of the Jacobean Routes to Santiago de Compostela, including the famous Silver Route. It is well worth visiting the architectural treasures in places such as Toro, Benavente, and the capital, Zamora, which is famous for its Romanesque art. The Easter Week celebrations in this area are particularly famous, and have been declared a Festivity of International Tourist Interest. Recommended specialities from the typical local gastronomy include the cheeses, and veal from Aliste.
