Meal in Belmonte
Guided visist to Belmonte.

We will walk the streets of this town of gentlemen. With a guided visit to the Castle of Juan Pacheco and the Collegiate Church of San Bartolomé. The Castle is one of the best examples of palatial residences of the fifteenth century: built by Marquis Pacheco and renovated in the 19th century by the French Empress Eugenia de Montijo, today keeps an impressive center of interpretation of the history of the building but the town is more than its castle, since its Collegiate Church of San Bartolomé, from the final Gothic, houses the first carved choir stalls throughout the Iberian Peninsula; or the birthplace of his most illustrious character, Fray Luis de León.
