Molinaseca

The rugged mountains give way to flat orchards and slopes with vines.

Squeezed between mountain and sky, the river Merueloof clear water with the wind from the heights, opens its lung, fragrant with heather and broom, next to the eyes of the Roman bridge and its waters stop at a river beach that is very popular with many visitors who, fleeing the sweltering heat of the city, give themselves a gift by bathing in the magnificent, pure and clean waters of the Meruelo River, which is the meaning of its name.

And, especially for the pilgrims who pass through here in summer, its waters are like the gift of a god protector of the walker.

Molinaseca also offers other attractions for visitors and pilgrims.

Strolling through its streets is to breathe a unique air of antiquity and lordship, of tradition and modernity, of great Jacobean flavor.

Streets full of flowers with typical Bierzo houses. D. Bernardo de Aldrete, canon of Granada, returning from Compostela in the early eighteenth century, says on arriving at Molinaseca: Good place with good houses of three sobrados and very much to the citizen and good church and towers.

The Villa is a Historic-Artistic Site declared BIC on 20/9/1975.

Its numerous restaurants and inns have a just reputation for good food.Some of its typical dishes are the caldo berciano, the botillo and the empanada de batallón, without forgetting the so renowned sausages of here -for the good chorizos the air has a charm in Molinaseca- and the whole range of the gastronomy of the Bierzo: cecina, roasted peppers and lacón, androlla, lamb, kid, trout, octopus a la berciana… And for dessert almendrados, roscas, roscones, the reineta apple pie, or chestnuts and figs in syrup, all accompanied by good wine from Bierzo and different types of brandies.
