Salamanca

In the heart of the Sierra de Francia Mountains (Salamanca province), you will find Miranda del Castañar. Its old town has been declared Property of Cultural Interest. Miranda del Castañar is a medieval town, made up of masonry and wooden buildings, typical of the mountains in Salamanca, and stonework houses bearing coats of arms.

Wander through the streets and you will travel back to a time when Jews and Moors inhabited the village. As well as noble buildings and traditional houses, the town has other interesting monuments. Starting by the old walls that surround it and the four gates that lead to the historic quarter: San Ginés, La Villa, Nuestra Señora and El Postigo. The castle, built in the 15th century, and its surroundings are especially interesting, as well as the Plaza de Armas. Other places worth mentioning are the Campanas Tower, built in the 17th century, in the church square; and the corn exchange building, the current Town Hall, built in 1585. Miranda del Castañar also preserves two of its five shrines: Humilladero, and outside the walls, Virgen de la Cuesta.
