Inreresting places and monuments on our trails.

The traditional, medieval washhouses are still present in many villages around Spain. They provide easy acces to clean running water for the public and were used to hand wash textiles, dishes, and to water animals, etc…
The construction may vary depending on region. The one in Santo Domingo se Silos is made of stone, covered with a wooden roof with tiles and divided in two parts of different water level. It is very well kept and adds romantic touch to the village architecture. The water is supplied by natural stream running under the monastery, through its cellars and pharmacy out to the reservoir and laundry to reunite with the river Mataviejas.
You can have a closer look joining us on El Cid trail or Covarrubias based stay.
