CARGANDO...

The Finca Marqués de Valdecilla is the most important natural and cultural space in Medio Cudeyo. Walking through its garden is going back to the beginning of the 20th century and learning about the life of an Indian family. A place where past stories and modern cultural, training and congressional activities mix.

With an area of 15 hectares, the Estate is a space that has a large garden and six buildings built between the 19th and early 20th centuries to be the residence of Don Ramón Pelayo de la Torriente, Marquis of Valdecilla. The property was purchased in 2003 and completely recovered by the Medio Cudeyo City Council. In this space there is a garden full of history.

We invite you to walk freely along its paths, listening to the sound of water in its fountains and contemplating its sculptures sitting next to the shade of imposing ancient trees. Don’t forget to visit The White House, which was the Marquis’ home and currently houses a museum about his figure and work.

The visitor can also see La Casuca and San Rafael, two completely recovered homes that show the rooms and decoration of the first half of the 20th century. The complex is completed by La Solana, a typical house with popular mountain architecture, El Garaje, old garages now converted into classrooms for training activities, or La Cabaña, where the farm’s stables were located and which is currently the headquarters of the employment and training programs of the Medio Cudeyo City Council.
