Descripción

Three villages are situated near Peña Amaya: Amaya, Puentes de Amaya and Peones de Amaya. The first one is an agricultural village. The most important tourist attractions in the place are the Church of San Pedro, several ancient houses and a typical instrument used to brand cattle.

Puentes de Amaya, which is uninhabited, is situated in a spectacular place between the mountains of Peña Amaya and the Sierra de Albacastro. In its bucolic ruins, you can discover a medieval fountain and the remains of a Romanesque church.

Peones has a very interesting ethnographic heritage: a small hermitage dedicated to the Virgen del Pilar, another instrument to brand cattle and a fountain with a trough and a washing place situated in the centre of the village. Not far from this hamlet, you will find a water surge called “la Meadina”.
