Day
Welcome to your Europamundo Trip Style!!! The information about the meeting place and start time of your circuit can be found on your voucher.
We will start our tour by visiting the Roman site COMPLUTUM, origin of the current Alcalá de Henares. We will walk through its streets, porches, forums, public baths, the basilica, admire its mosaics and wall paintings in private houses. Then, we will have time to visit the Regional Archaeological Museum of Madrid, where all the archaeological finds of the Community of Madrid, in charge of their restoration and exhibition in the permanent exhibition rooms are gathered.
We continue to MEDINACELI, the "City of the Hill or the Sky". It is one of the most beautiful cities in the province of Soria, we will lose ourselves in its narrow streets, a mixture of cultures, we will see its Roman Arch, from where we will enjoy an amazing panoramic view, among others, we will be able to observe the salt flats of Roman origin.
After lunch, we head to SORIA, a small and pleasant town, full of legends on the banks of the Douro River, calm and inspiring. Its wide and varied religious architecture stands out, highlighting the hermitage of San Saturio, the Cloister of San Juan de Duero and the Romanesque facade of Santo Domingo. We will also visit the Numantino Museum (admission included). In the evening, we can taste the wide culinary offer of its bars and restaurants.
Accommodation.
After breakfast and just 7 km away, we find NUMANCIA, a Celtiberian city famous for its 20-year resistance against the Roman army, which ended with the suicide of its entire population. Numantine resistance is a universal reference. We can learn from the recreation of two houses, one Celtiberian and the other from Roman times.
Then we went to another important city of Arévaco origin, UXAMA. We will visit the archaeological site, the Cistern and the Casa de los Plintos. From this enclave, a wide territory is controlled, which allowed the development and evolution of the city until Islamic times.
We continue to BURGO DE OSMA, where its cathedral (entrance included), its imposing buildings and the splendid Main Square stand out. Time for lunch.
We are now going to one of the most significant and surprising Arévacos sites in our geography, TIERMES, known as "Spanish Pompeii". The remains of the forums, the theater, the thermal baths and the aqueduct stand out.
After this visit, we will appreciate the landscapes of the Segovian province, with its fields and mountains, we will stop in the most beautiful city AYLLÓN, of course of Celtiberian origin, and now one of the most impressive and authentic villages in Spain, with its red architecture and its medieval scenery .
