La Alberca is worth a visit. It is historical town with a current population of about 1000. Only residents are allowed to have vehicles in the historical centre. In the off season, it can be a quiet, sleepy location. Besides being very beautiful, the town is known for the production of ham and other pork products.

Castilla y León is an autonomous community of Spain, the country's largest — in fact, it is the largest subnational political division in the European Union. It 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 in the Middle Ages.


Spanish is the main language, everybody in Castile-Leon speak Spanish, but in the provinces of León, Zamora and Salamanca, Leonese is also spoken by a little minority.
