Visit Penaranda de Duero
Penaranda de Duero is in the province of Burgos in the Castile and Leon region of Spain.
Penaranda de Duero is a lovely medieval village overlooked by the large Castle of Peranda. Its historic centre is one of the prettiest and most interesting in old Castille and is not to be missed if you are in the area.
The highlight of the village is the Palacio de los Condes de Miranda, a beautiful Renaissance palace. However just walking around the village and admiring the pantiled houses, large Renaissance and Baroque houses and the lovely main square - the Plaza Mayor - is a treat.
