La Vuelta returns to Aranda de Duero more than ten years after its last visit (2006). This town in the province of Burgos is famous for its numerous wineries, or bodegas, which reflect its privileged location and make it one of the maximum exponents of the designation of origin of Ribera del Duero. The streets of Aranda provide an excellent opportunity to savour its fine wines or admire the church of Santa María la Real, one of the best examples of the late Gothic style within the vast array of buildings in this architectural style in Castile.
Guadalajara has been one of the European City of Sports in 2018, which has meant EU recognition for the policies rolled out by the city’s Local Authority in its quest to foster sport among the population. This year, the city has held numerous domestic and international events in athletics, badminton and rhythmic gymnastics, to name just a few. A commitment to sport that will be compounded by the peloton’s arrival as La Vuelta passes through its streets 13 years after its last visit.
