In a stunning natural setting, surrounded by lush mountain landscapes and sheltered by the Guara, Santa Cilia de Panzano commands your attention when you arrive.
Its simple and concise street layout is full of charm. The Parish Church of Santa Cecilia y Bárbara welcomes visitors with a restored tower, now converted into an interpretation center. This is the “Casa de los Buitres (House of Vultures)”, an interpretive and interactive space where children and adults alike can discover the native wildlife, with special focus on birds. Santa Cilia de Panzano is an unbeatable location for studying and observing birds, particularly raptors, and has an accessible viewpoint where you watch birds fly and learn more about the life and customs of these birds.
Nearby is the Chapel of the Virgen de Arraro. Accessible by a complicated and difficult path, this small Romanesque chapel, now it ruins, marks the spot where an ancient village once stood on the rocks.
From Santa Cilia, take the signposted trail that runs straight to the end of the village to ascend the south face of the Tozal de Guara.
