Information about Calzadilla de la Cueza

Calzadilla de la Cueza is a small town in the province of Palencia that has just over 50 inhabitants, a population density that is increased considerably with the passage of pilgrims who give life to the village.

With its solitary tower, a beacon for pilgrims, the town is named after a road that is still preserved, the so-called Via Aquitania, well before the Camino de Santiago but which served to direct the pilgrims to the tomb of the Apostle.
