Village of Soto de Valdeón

Soto de Valdeón stands out for its valuable ethnographic heritage. In this locality there is a collection of 17 hórreos among those that include the oldest of the Valley of Valdeón, 2 catalogued as archaic with more than 500 years of antiquity.

The Village

In this town is the Church of San Pedro Advíncula of the XII century, with an important artistic value thanks to its Renaissance altarpiece, the life-size carvings of several Saints and the polychrome capitals of the portal. You can also visit the 16th century hermitage of the Virgen Blanca (now known as the Virgen del Carmen) known in the valley as “La Capilla”.

Currently there is only one mill in good state of conservation, but to witness its flourishing past it is necessary to mention that in the nineteenth century Soto de Valdeón came to have 6 mills simultaneously, 4 of them communal and 2 private.
