On a ridge looking south and across the wooded valley to Peña de Francia, Sequeros is a village of architectural richness and variety with its tall medieval houses, flower-filled balconies, and two churches, one (16th century) on the outskirts of the village in a clearing surrounded by oaks and housing the exquisite Virgin “de la Buena Leche”.

There is a fifteenth century hermitage, a charming 19th Century theatre (still put to use at fiesta times), and over all is an atmosphere of elegant order – perhaps a result of the time when the village was the administrative capital of the Sierra.

A butcher’s (reputed to be the best in the area), a supermarket, chemist’s, banks and several small shops keep you well supplied, while there is a restaurant and bars, and the local ‘hostal’ has a swimming pool open to non-residents.

A pretty park and playground, the local rivers providing trout fishing and swimming, excellent walking countryside all round, and its closeness to other pretty villages make Sequeros an excellent holiday base.
