The prominence of the Duero in the Soria capital of Ribera del Duero is enormous, and if not, ask the great stone bridge with 16 eyes that saves it. This river beach that we present to you is declared suitable for swimming by the census of the Junta de Castilla y León (dated 2020). It is located precisely on the long-distance path (known as GR-14) in its stages 7 and 8.
Upstream from "El Sotillo" (the capricious islet that the Duero draws as it passes through this municipality), the Sanestebeños can enjoy two bathing areas prior to a breakwater formed by large blocks of stone and concrete that tame the "beast" :
"La Alameda" (left bank), is a mixed beach of sand and stone protected by a dense grove, with rest areas, tables and barbecues.
On the opposite shore, "La Rambla" (right bank) is also a small relaxation area, which also has a pair of stairs to enter and exit the water, overcoming the small gap that the river forms with the pedestrian walkway.
A little higher up, a jetty allows canoeists to access the river with ease.
