Castilla y León, which was previously known as the Community of Castile and León, is Spain's largest autonomous community.  In fact, it is the largest subnational political division in the European Union. 

The community is formed by the union of  two ancient kingdoms: Old Castile (Ávila, Burgos, Segovia and Soria) and the Kingdom of León (León, Zamora, Salamanca, Palencia and Valladolid), which were separated and reunited several times during the Middle Ages.

Castilla y León borders on Asturias and Cantabria to the north, Aragon, the Basque Country, and La Rioja to the east, the autonomous community of Madrid and Castile-La Mancha to the southeast, Extremadura to the south, and on Portugal and Galicia to the west.

Castilla y León roughly overlaps with the Spanish part of the Douro River basin, on the northern half of the Meseta Central, a vast plateau in the middle of the Iberian Peninsula. It also extends to some adjoining valleys, such as El Bierzo (León) and many secluded mountain valleys: Laciana (León), Valle de Mena (Burgos), Valle del Tiétar (Ávila), etc.

This Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) comes from the country's northern plateau and the area is one of eleven 'quality wine' regions within the autonomous community of Castile and León. It is also one of several recognised wine-producing regions to be found along the course of the Duero river.  Ribera del Duero was named wine region of the year 2012 by the prestigious Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

The region is the land communication hub of northern Spain. It is crossed by the International E-roads E80 and E05. These are the main roads connections between Portugal and the south of Spain with the rest of Europe.

Castilla and León is also crossed by two major ancient routes:

  • The Way of St. James (Spanish: Camino de Santiago), now a hiking trail and a motorway, from East to West.
  • The Roman Silver Way (Spanish: Vía de la Plata), now a main road, through the West of the region.

This hotel comprises a late 18th century building that formerly housed the Santiago Pilgrims Hospital, preserving the façade of the chapel bearing the same name, and an adjoining building created by the architect Cardenas in 1906. It is located in the city centre, just a few metres from the Cathedral, the Gaudí Palace and the Roman walls and has a large 19th century style garden. The meticulous care taken during the recent refurbishment has endeavoured to restore the architectural and historic features of the building incorporating all types of modern comforts to ensure a thoroughly pleasurable stay...
