The group of music “La Flor y los Romeros”, was born in the spring of 2015. Formed by Almudena López, Alfonso Ahumada, Sergio Higuera and Javier Román "the Ninu" great acquaintances of Cantabrian folk music, it is currently one of the most beloved groups of Cantabria.
From a deep country root, the conjunction of their voices with instruments such as the violin, the guitar or the rebec, and his nods to traditional and American folk, they have been a breath of fresh air in the Cantabrian folk music, achieved success not only in his own land, but throughout the country.
An appointment you should not miss if you are a good music lover.
The Torre Palacio de los Orgaz was built in the late 14th/early 15th century by the House of Mendoza—one of the most powerful families in Álava—to facilitate control over the main transport route for salt from Añana. The family controlled the route to Castile to the south and towards the ports of the Cantabrian Sea to the north.
Would you like to find out how people lived in the Middle Ages, who ordered the tower’s construction and how the stonemasons worked? Would you like to be knighted? Come join our dramatised visits to find out more. We use theatrical performances to pique interest and create enjoyment and learning throughout the unique spaces in the Torre Palacio de los Condes de Orgaz.
The visits are themed and brought to life by people whose mission it is to help us interpret and discover the history of the tower and the castle. Visitors participate directly in the dramatised visits and become the characters in the story.
You will also discover the Santa Catalina Botanical Garden. Extending across 32,500 square metres and rising and falling between 605 and 675 metres above sea level, it houses the ruins of an ancient palace, convent and church as well as the remains of ancient terraces. It is currently under the ownership of Iruña de Oca Town Hall. This institution has led the restoration of the space, transforming it into a site that combines environmental education, recreation and an encounter with nature. It provides a model for new creative relationships between man and the natural environment.
The joint visit takes place on the third Sunday in April, May, June, July, September and October.
