Olmos de Atapuerca: at the foot of the Sierra de Atapuerca, drilled in its surroundings by various mines and quarries, some adapted for the visit as the Esperanza Mine. It is highly recommended to take a route through the forests of the mountains and discover its small corners, the mining remains and stumble upon wildlife (roe deer, foxes, wild boar …).
Fresno de Rodilla: with barely 25 inhabitants and the road ending at it, it is an ideal place to let the children entertain themselves . Located on a hill, its houses pour water into both the Duero and Ebro basins, enjoying wonderful views over the entire Sierra de la Demanda, the mountains of Oca, the Sierra de Atapuerca, the heights of La Brújula and the most distant peaks of the Montes Obarenes or the Sierra de Las Mamblas. You can walk the path of the springs and discover the “dolmen” (La Brújula tumulus of campaniform age) and the Roman road (Italian road in Hispania). span>
Galarde: with hardly any inhabitants who reside all year round, it is located at the foot of the enormous forest mass of the Montes de Oca . With its small mountain-style church, the Camino de Santiago used to pass through here on the Arlanzón road, with the Sierra de la Demanda in front.
Ideal for mountain biking or hiking, you can walk through its forests to the Alba dam in Villafranca Montes de Oca, to Villasur de Herreros, the Uzquiza reservoir or in search of mushrooms (permission required).
