This historic villa, which currently has 239 inhabitants, is 10 kms from Aranda de Duero.
La Aguilera offers the hiker a signposted route known as 'Cuesta del Águila' of 8 kms, and a small mountain called 'La Malagueña' that offers privileged views of the whole region of the Ribera del Duero.
Besides the natural environment, this village of Aranda de Duero has an interesting popular architecture. The Church of San Cristóbal and the convent of San Pedro Regalado, in the Franciscan style, have their origins in a hermitage from the end of the 14th century. It is currently the headquarters of the Iesu Communio Women’s Religious Institute.
San Pedro Regalado is the patron saint of this town that celebrates its patron saint festivities in mid-May, apart from the summer festivities.
