LEÓN CONQUERS THE PALATE
León is the ideal proposal for those travelers who wish to enjoy a perfect combination between culture and cuisine. Its old town with cobbled streets picks up one of the most important Gothic cathedrals in Spain, started in the 13th century and finished a century later, it keeps intact its imposing stained glass windows, thus becoming a must for its architectural exceptionality.
In the city of Leon, recently named the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy 2018, you have exquisite cuisine, with cecina, botillo or peppers of Bierzo as three of its most emblematic products, until a walk through the emblematic Barrio Húmedo to enjoy the most traditional taverns recognized from the city. And is that traveling without enjoying the local cuisine, is not traveling. If you can do it this year, why wait for the next one?
THE AUTUMNAL CHARM OF HERVÁS
In a privileged natural environment, north of Cáceres and with the Sierra de Béjar behind it, is Hervás, a small town in size but with infinite possibilities for the traveler.
It preserves very well the original structure of the XIV and XV centuries and its narrow and zigzagging streets show the Jewish past of this town, declared a Historic-Artistic Site, where buildings such as the Brotherhood, the old synagogue or the medieval bridge of the Chiquita Fountain .
This town in Cáceres offers different hiking routes such as La Chorrera, which flows into a 15-meter drop waterfall, where ferns and moss welcome the autumnal colors. Another alternative for the more adventurous is to take the mountain bike and get lost through the chestnut forests, thanks to the route of the Heidi trail.
TURIN: LUXURY OF AUTUMN
If what you want is a plan outside our borders, northwest of Italy is the mountainous city of Turin, capital of the Piedmont region. Art, history and gastronomy make this city a unique destination where you can take a long walk through Piazza Castello and Via Roma to see one of the most important collections of ancient Egyptian objects in the world. The particular beauty of this city is best enjoyed during these times when there are fewer crowds to succumb to the charm of the medieval town or Valentino Park, which houses an 18th-century castle.
Autumn becomes the ideal season to savor local cuisine and local wines. Another reason to travel this fall to Piedmont is the International Truffle Fair, which takes place until November 27, in the city of Alba, 60 kilometers from the capital. This mushroom, also known as ‘white gold of nature’, can reach very high prices, only for the poorest pockets.
SKI AND SHOPPING IN ANDORRA
By the time the end of the year approaches and the first snows arrive, Andorra can be your destination. The mountain and the low temperatures are ideal elements to take the skis or the snowboard and to realize physical exercise, at the same time that you leave behind the responsibilities of the day to day. A trip to Andorra is the perfect plan for it.
The Principality occupies a privileged position in the Pyrenean mountain range and, together with shopping tourism, it offers one of the most important ski resorts of the peninsula, Grandvalira. The quality of its tracks – ranked 13th in the world with more skiable kilometers – joins the comfort of all its spacious and modern facilities. If you want to get away from the most common activities, you can opt for a dog sled ride or snowmobile or snowshoe excursions.
CHRISTMAS ADVANCE IN BERLIN
Everyone has to visit Berlin at least once in their life. Cultural diversity coexists with history and street art. An example of this is the famous image of the East Side Gallery on the Berlin Wall, which has been preserved after its fall in 1989, and was made by Thierry Noir to denounce the abuse of power that was produced by the guards who guarded the area border.
As an alternative to ‘street art’, we find the Christmas markets, which abound in the German capital. In particular, the one that is located under the castle of Charlottenburg is one of the most popular. In its more than 150 stalls we can find Christmas gifts, from crafts to old objects, small toys or accessories and, of course, discover the German sweets. If you travel with children, you can enjoy the magic of the carousel.
