Cigales Wine Route

The EuroVelo 1 itinerary from Dueñas in Palencia province to Fuensaldaña in Valladolid province is part of the Cigales Wine Route. It has been linked to the Canal de Castilla ever since the latter was built in the 18th century. This route is steeped in the history of the Catholic Monarchs, Philip II, and Napoleon Bonaparte. Don’t miss its monasteries where for centuries wine was produced and consumed, such as that of San Isidro de Dueñas, the Castle of Fuensaldaña, the Enchanted Castle of Trigueros del Valle, and the Church of Cigales which is known as the “Cathedral of Wine”. Its gastronomy based on local products is another of its charms.
