Description of the municipality
The landscape around the agricultural town of Bañares is the setting for the beautiful chapel of Santa María de la Antigua and an excellent campsite with capacity for more than 2,000 people.
94% of the surface area of the municipality is cultivated, the land being uniform and flat.
Even so, this has not stopped an exodus of people over the years. The village currently has a population of the around 400, a figure that increases in summer.
The municipality is, above all, ecologically-minded, given the great importance of its attraction for rural tourism.
