Start your day with a visit to the Episcopal Palace of Astorga, a modernist building designed by world-famous architect Antonio Gaudí. This is one of the few works he made outside Barcelona. It’s both a fairytale palace and a castle and it was built in the late 1800’s. It is now one of the most remarkable landmarks in The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route.
You will travel back in time as you admire this architectural masterpiece.
After the visit, you will enjoy a unique and highly personal experience: a Jamón Ibérico private tasting hand carved by knife in front of you by a Master Ham Carver.
You will learn how to distinguish all the different types of Hams in Spain and you will taste Jamon Ibérico directly from the knife of a qualified professional. Every paper-thin slices of this delicacy has a unique flavour you will have the chance to enjoy as they melt in your mouth.
Tonight you will rest like a king in the Palacio de Canedo, the most important wine estate in Bierzo. You will immerse yourself into a spectacular palace made of wood & stone, beautifully restored and turned into a rustic-chich luxury hotel surrounded by vineyards.
A stroll through the vineyards and a wine tasting of their famous wines paired with delicious local food while you contemplate a spectacular sunset will be the cherry on the cake to a visit to this magical region.
Because there are few greater experiences that to simply enjoy a glass of wine looking out over the Spanish sunset…
