Did you know that... Santibáñez de Valdeiglesias

 

It is located in the fertile plain of the river Órbigo, in the so-called Valle de las Iglesias and forms part of the municipality of Villares de Órbigo. Its time seems to beat slowly and quietly giving the place a peaceful peace. In the middle of the Jacobean route of the French Way, the invocation of its church makes believe that in Santibáñez de Valdeiglesias settled the Trinitarian monks who since the thirteenth century served the pilgrims.

Curiosities

 

In the month of August Santibáñez de Valdeiglesias, rather its outskirts, become an immense labyrinth, the largest in the world, The Labyrinth of Corn. This natural monument changes its physiognomy and theme every year and in its centre hides an enigma, which those who walk through the labyrinth and reach it have to solve. This project was promoted in its day by the Junta Vecinal of the town and has been carried out for several years, being declared of Special Interest and Regional Tourist Repercussion by the General Direction of Tourism of the Junta de Castilla y León.

 

The Legend

 

It is said that the origin of the Labyrinth of Corn, game and claim that the town of Santibáñez de Valdeiglesias offers each year, is related to the Way and the game of the goose and that Santibáñez would be the box 42 of that game, or the labyrinth.
