Desfiladero de Yecla

Canyon in Around Burgos

A mere 1.3km down the back road (BU911) to Caleruega from Santo Domingo de Silos, the spectacular Desfiladero de Yecla, a splendid gorge of limestone cliffs, opens up. It's easily visited thanks to a walkway: the stairs lead down from just past the tunnel exit. Watch for the vultures high on their perches above the gorge.
