What's Palencia Like?
Palencia is known for its wealth of historic beauty, churches and museums. Combining picturesque heritage and stunning archaeological sites with modern conveniences, you can visit ancient monuments and shops in the same day - Calle Mayor is the heart of the city from which most attractions are easily accessible. Once known as Roman Pallantia, Palencia represents some of the strongest Romanesque influenced style in Spain. The 'unknown beauty' - the local name for Palencia's 14th Century cathedral - is a must-see for afficionados of religious history. The Archaeological Museum and the crypt of San Antolin represent the unique ancient background of Palencia. Steeped in charm, the city has stories to tell dating back to the Middle Ages, and calming views of Carrion river valley and Monte el Viejo forest aren't far away. Enjoy this knowing that your hotel is waiting to welcome you at the end of the day.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Palencia
The locals in Palencia are known for their hospitality. They are proud of their iconic dishes so don't be surprised to be offered pichon estofado (stewed pigeon!) Try some famous Aguilar de Campoo biscuits or leche frita, made from eggs, sugar, flour and milk. Learn some Spanish phrases; although many people speak English, they appreciate visitors making an effort. Be prepared to cover yourself when visiting churches or other religious buildings; there aren't always rules but be respectful and wear a shawl or cover-up when entering these sites - traditional people may prefer not to see bare limbs. Don't be fooled by the weather; in winter, Palencia experiences chilly winds and even snow. In summer however, temperatures easily exceed 85°F. To choose a perfect Palencia hotel, book with Venere.
