Hoces del Río Duratón

"Hoces del Río Duratón" Nature Reserve is a few kilometers drive from Sepúlveda along mountain roads, and past quarries. The gorge is stunning with reddish rock and an unusually green river.

Here you'll find many vultures soaring high and low looking for food.

This is also the location of the Hermitage of San Frutos, which is now in ruins:

All these photos were taken by me on my excursion to medieval Spain last weekend.
