On the second day enjoy a great morning walk through the village or just go straight into the two main sites of historic and artistic importance: the gothic temple of Santa Maria la Real Church (15th century) and Iglesia de San Juan (14th century), both impressive buildings in the city centre.
A great traditional long Spanish meal will be served at the Asador Lagar de Isilla restaurant to celebrate the final part of your tour. You will have the local delicacy (roasted baby lamb) and visit the restaurant's underground medieval wine cellar dating from the 14th century. 
Please note:

This is a great basic tour but there are other alternatives to it: more wineries, an urban hotel instead of a rural one and other level of accommodation as well as meals of various types. Please ask for these other options at time of booking.
