There is a great selection of rich heritage, gastronomy and natural surroundings around Urbión Camping. With natural parks, art, history, flora and fauna…there are many different possibilities to be discovered! The privileged location of the campsite in the area will allow you enjoy all of them without having to go too far:
To the south of Urbión peak, amongst the pines and surrounded by legends, lies the Laguna Negra. This dark, fascinating and enigmatic lake is one of the most beautiful attractions of the province of Soria and the scene of the Antonio Machado’s legend of Alvargonzález. Situated between rocks and surrounded by pine trees, the lake is immersed in legend and in the mystery of the echoing voices of those who visit it.
“EL CAÑÓN DEL RÍO LOBOS”
There are numerous marked hiking trails and it is possible to enter into one of the many torques, chasms and caves that mine their way into the rock. Given enough time, you can also visit Galiana cave or the hermitage of St. Bartholomew, a Romanesque building from the first quarter of the thirteenth century with a budding gothic influence.
“picos de urbión”
The Picos de Urbión are noted for their expansive forests of wild pine trees, which have aptly given the region the Spanish name “región pinariega”. They are made up of many sites of outstanding and incomparable natural beauty, as well as the source of the river Duero, found at the heart of the Picos de Urbión.
“LA FUENTONA DE MURIEL”
To the west of the province is an area known as Ojo de Mar or La Fuentona, a crystal-clear natural spring (and source of the river Abión). Nearby, you can also find Sabinar de Calatañazor, a forest declared a nature reserve and home to various species of trees characterised by height, size and longevity.
“PINAR GRANDE AND RESERVOIR”
From the campsite you can see the Cuerda del Pozo Reservoir. Its setting is ideal for many sports (windsurfing, sailing …), including aquatics, which are mainly practiced at Playa Pita, the official beach of Soria. To top it all off, after a demanding activity, you can take a swim in the water of the reservoir, which is also suitable for water sports and fishing. There is also a small marina.
