The medieval village of Covarrubias is well worth a visit. Surrounded by stunning Castilian countryside, it’s a delightful place for a short stay or stop over where you are unlikely to bump into too many other tourists unless they are Spanish. Casa Galín in the main square serves delicious, copious and very reasonably priced menus and we stay with the delightful Carmen and Alberto in their charming small hotel Doña Sancha outside the centre, where a double room and breakfast costs 60 euros. The much more famous Santo Domingo de Silos with its wonderful carvings and chanting monks is an easy ride away, as is the Yecla Gorge and of course Burgos with its huge cathedral is just up the N234. This is real Spain. We really shouldn’t be sharing it with you!
