HEART OF SPAIN
THE THIRD BIGGEST
REGION IN EUROPE
Castilla y León is synonymous with history, culture and nature. From mountains to plateaus, from wetlands to vast rivers, the landscape reflects the crucial role played by rural communities: the region’s men and women who have worked to preserve the traditional way of life, promoting a quality food and agriculture sector.
BUILDING A QUALITY-
Castilla y León is not only one of Europe’s main food producers but also one of the regions with the most quality seals recognised by the European Union. In response to the demands of small and medium-sized food producers, the regional government is building a quality-focused culture in order to support small companies, competing in the global economy.
THE LARDER OF SPAIN
Today, Castilla y León is one of the main food producers in continental Europe. It should be pointed out that our region is the leader in the production of cereals, potatoes, beetroot, milk and lamb, and the second largest national producer in beef, cow’s milk, and pork, all of which entitles us to say that Castilla y León is the larder of Spain.
