It does attract visitors though, particularly for its popular classical music festival, held in August and for its lively fiesta on 25th April.
The village has two bars, one of which has a country style restaurant and several small bodegas.
You are very well placed for exploring the region with Haro, the wine capital with its grand bodegas at 11kms, Santo Domingo de La Calzada with its cathedral and the famous crowing cock, a short drive, and beyond the ski resort at Ezcaray and the ancient monasteries of Suso and Yuso at San Millan de la Cogolla. Yet nearer at hand the surrounding villages of Casalarreina, Tirgo and Cuzcurrita del Rio Tiron must not be missed.
