San Vicente Del Monte
San Vicente del Monte
San Vicente del Monte itself sits like a cap on top of its steep hill looking down on the valley farms, the mountains ranged behind. A lovely old village, with two bar/shops, it’s a rural community still living and working within the traditions of many years, with animals still very much part of village life.
The little hamlet of La Herreria, 4km away at the bottom of the valley, has a bar/restaurant with good home cooking and Treceño, a little further on, has several restaurants and bars as well as a small supermarket, pharmacy and other shops.
It is a very peaceful part of the world; farmers and their animals, the bread van and the occasional mobile shop are all the traffic you’ll see.
