There are a lot of steps, however, take your time, it's worth the climb for the pretty village and a good cup of coffee. The waterfalls can be seen from the bottom of the steps.

The waterfalls are incredible bursting from the limestone rocks Nd running through the village. The mountain ranges around and the scenery is breath taking. An hour north of Burgos but the roads are poor. The village clings to the canyon side and it is unusual...More

if you can, find time to visit this beautiful little village, locked into a narrow valley about 60km north of Burgos. Take the time to walk around and explore the cliffs and walks surrounding the village. Back to another era!

One of my favourite villages in the area. Besides the village and its waterfalls there are some beautiful walks in the area following the Ebro river deep in a canyon surrounded by limestone cliffs. Avoid weekend if you don't want crowds!

Be aware, only one (terrible) restaurant is open for dinner in the village on Mondays. We loved this incredibly scenic area and staying overnight at the only hotel. . . La Puebla. It was like stepping back in time. A truly unique experience!

Really nice place, looks so much better than the pictures. Only 5km off the main road N623. This is also a very scenic road travelling between Burgos and Santander, and at quite reasonable speeds in most places.

I had to make a choice: Burgos or Orbaneja del Castillo? (We were limited in time). I looked at pictures and decided Orbaneja del Castillo was way more prettier. It’s only 55 km from Burgos! When we arrived we fell in love by this village...More
