If you are visiting this impressive landscape and you want to know what to eat, its cuisine is typical of the El Bierzo region, with specialties like the botillo (meat seasoned with different spices) with cachelos and grelos, collard greens or cabbage and Leon cuisine.
Villages like Cacabelos, Vega de Valcárcel or Villafranca invite you to try their cured meats and cheeses. The blood sausage, berciana empanada, cured meats, lacón with peppers, and octopus are all recommended. The Bierzo wine or the Tierra de León, both with certificates of origin, are perfect to pair with a meal.
Don’t miss the opportunity to try some of the local mountain stews made with game meat that are served in many restaurants throughout the region. They are filling and tasty. To finish the meal, you can try the café de puchero that is made in some of the local restaurants.
