29 Dec The winter next to the Douro in Zamora
When you arrive at the Zamora train station, we recommend that you collect tourist information at the lobby stand so that you can make the most of your trip to the city. Once on the street you will be surprised by the impressive neo-plateresque facade. In this facade remains a relief of the Catholic Monarchs.
If you visit this city this Christmas, it is highly recommended that you do the Nativity Route. It is composed of a few, each with its peculiarities. The most outstanding are: the Bethlehem of the Diputación de Zamora. The Morana. Church of the Incarnation; the Bethlehem of the Town Hall of Zamora in the Interpretation Center of the Medieval Cities; the Bethlehem of the Ethnographic Museum of Castilla y León. The Lego World at Christmas and the Bethlehem of the Cathedral of Zamora.
Also the Ethnographic Museum of Castilla y León is highly recommended to visit with children at any time of the year. Precisely, speaking of children, the city offers a variety of activities on Christmas, as it is a perfect destination for family tourism.
Zamora is a city, comfortable, quiet and pleasant, rich in heritage not only cultural, but also natural, such as the Forest of Valorio, the banks of the Douro River and the surroundings of the neighborhood of Carrascal, where you will find a considerable number of birds, reptiles, butterflies and other species. You can do, on foot or by bike, interesting bird watching routes.
And, beyond, of its patrimonial and natural wealth, is its gastronomic wealth: do not go without tasting its traditional suckling lamb or ‘lechazo’, a typical product of the usual province in the Christmas menu. Delicious are also its cheeses and its wines.
