A short walk from the Plaza Ducal, this is a smaller but picturesque plaza. At the end are a row of arches through which are great views of the surrounding countryside.

The place for a view. A little town in your route from Madrid to Bordeaux near Burgos. Lerma is a recommended stop in the highway.
