Palencia, the land of a thousand landscapes

cerrato palencia

The reasons that can move someone to visit Palencia are very varied: we have clients who seek our culture, others who are willing to immerse themselves in the Castilian gastronomy; others tell us about nature but what they all find are a thousand different landscapes in which to get lost. And that a few kilometres from our Finca.

One of the advantages of visiting Finca El Cercado is to be able to enjoy the cultural offer of the province of Palencia while you are with us. From May the10th, there is an appointment that you can’t miss, since that day will be inaugurated the new exhibition of Las Edades del Hombre in Aguilar de Campoo under the name “Mons Dei”.

Roman Villa of La Olmeda, a must for Roman Art Lovers in Castille

If Palencia is a place of pilgrimage for lovers of Romanesque, the Roman Villa of La Olmeda is a must for those who love Roman art. A unique corner where you can immerse yourself in their habits of life, their art and their legacy. Located in the Palencia municipality of Pedrosa de la Vega, just one hour from our Finca, it is a must to dive into the art and way of life of 2000 years ago.
