For the visitor, there are different possibilities to fully enjoy nature and long resting periods, not only within the city itself but also in the surroundings.
In Rioseco you can explore the Campos Canal, the Torozos mounts or the river Sequillo route.
The Channel of Castile was one of the dreams of the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century.
The plan was to create a net of navigable channels to make it easier to ship wool, wine and cereal from the then isolated Castile to the ports of the North, because Castile was an important centre of production for these products at that time.
The flora of the region is unique and the wide Castilian fields form a particular landscap, which is worth seeing in the different seasons, even though is especially beautiful in autumn when the channel gets admirable ochre tones.
The tourist boat “Antonio de Ulloa”, sails regularly from Tuesday to Sunday from the dock in Medina de Rioseco. The trips last an hour and cover 7 km. The timetable may change depending on the season.
The Channel offers other leisure time activities such as the hire of bikes and cannoes which provides the visitor a different way of enjoing the natural environment.
On the left bank of the dock you can visit “San Antonio” an old flour mill from the 19th century, which still preserves all the ancient machinery. On a guided visit to it you can discern the complex process of cleaning and grinding the wheat.
