Parador de Ribadeo
This is such a medieval village 37 kilometres northeast away from Segovia and our Parador de Segovia. Part of its charm is the fact of being a tiny village with less than 500 inhabitants. It is considered a Historical site of the region where you can visit its medieval fortress and you can only access the village by its Puerta de La Villa, a monument dated in the XI century. You can also visit the museum of what it was an important medieval jail and the defensive building of the XIII century: The Castle of Pedraza. You can make it from our Parador de Segovia to Pedraza through N-110 road really easily.
