The hanging houses of Frías are an authentic spectacle for the tourist. These houses seem intact with the passage of time, specifically, in medieval times, when Frías became a strategic place of first order between the Cantabrian Coast and the Meseta. The houses of Frías can be of one, two or three floors, forming streets differentiated by their height.

The normal thing when approaching Frías and discovering it in the height between the green, is to feel attracted. Its castle, a fortress from the 10th century, and the church of San Vicente Mártir stand out, presiding over the height and from which fantastic views can be appreciated. Another point of interest is the medieval bridge, originally a Roman construction. If you access Frías from the south, you will discover its peculiar hanging houses. They seem to be part of the cliff on which they are located. As a curiosity, did you know that Frías has the title of city despite having about 300 inhabitants? It was granted in the 15th century by King Juan II of Castile. It is less than an hour and a half from cities like Burgos or Bilbao. Other towns in Burgos worth visiting? Poza de la Sal, Santo Domingo de Silos, Caleruega?
Perhaps all these charms are what seduced Orson Welles to shoot “Chimes at Midnight” here. Other towns in Soria worth visiting? Medinaceli, Yanguas, Monteagudo de las Vicarías, Vinuesa…
For the mayor of Monteagudo de las Vicarías, Carlos González Pérez, “today begins a new stage in the long history of Monteagudo de las Vicarías, the beginning of a promising future for our neighbors, today we start the way for our children to stay in Monteagudo de las Vicarías, thanks to an award that is a pride for all, but that also forces us to work to continue beautifying our town”.
The subdelegate of the Government in Soria of the Junta de Castilla y León, Miguel Latorre Zuribi, recalled the importance of this award for the four municipalities of Soria, Monteagudo de las Vicarías, Vinuesa Medinaceli and Yanguas, and how the incorporation to the network represents a before and after for its neighbors.
