Frómista. Canal de Castilla. Juan de Homar Boat

The Canal de Castilla, an imposing piece of work of Spanish civil engineering of the Age of Enlightenment, was built in the 18th and 19th centuries and was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1991. It originated as a shipping channel to transport the agricultural surplus of the region and is today one of the most attractive tourist routes in Castilla y León owing to the richness of its landscapes which include the moors, the riverbanks, and the plains of the Tierra de Campos and also to the historical and artistic value of the cities it crosses. On the EuroVelo 1 itinerary you can combine your bike ride with a short 4-km trip on the Canal de Castilla on the Juan de Homar Boat from Boadilla del Camino to Frómista.
