Fermoselle is a remote, picturesque, medieval village -- miraculously preserved -- throughout the ages, with granite stone houses quaintly lined along narrow streets
of natural stone pavers dating back more than 2,000
years. The village of Fermoselle has been designated as
an artistic, cultural, historic, and architectonic conjunt
of Castile & Leon's patrimony in Spain, inclusive of the "Juderias"; an ancient Jewish settlement considered an integral part of its past cultural and historic make-up.
This was recently recognized by the village's Mayor and
the village townspeople when the President of Talmud
of Fermoselle was given the symbolic keys to the
Jewish Quarters of the village.
On a visit, one can find water fountains from the Roman era, in working condition among other genuinely valuable historic treasures. This mystical village is located at a geographical point, on the tract of the Duero River,
where its flow carved a phenomenal gargantuan canyon expanding 163 kilometers.
Some of the canyon walls reach 450 meters in height forming topographic conditions that create a unique microclimate in this viticulture Eden. The grapes from the vineyards of Mansion Garrido are found atop the hills at the entrance to Fermoselle. The Arribes del Duero River Canyon is a natural park, the largest in Castille & León.
It is also the official site where "The Center for Interpretation" of this expansive natural park is located, open to the public free to view a spectacularly produced multimedia presentation and exposition of the Arribes del Duero River Canyon to learn about the uniqueness of the park´s beauty and natural characteristics.
