Tobera village is a beatifull place belonging to the municipality of Frias. It stands out for two precious hermitages, a medieval bridge and for the waterfalls that run alongside.
The Hermitage of Santa María de la Hoz is the largest and Romanesque style. Its construction dates from the thirteenth century. Formerly it served as a hostel for pilgrims on the road to Santiago that passed through the area.
Nearby is the Hermitage of Cristo de los Remedios. Although it is smaller, it also has its charm. It dates from the seventeenth century and contains in its interior a crucified Christ.
You can also see a beautiful medieval bridge that allows you to save the Molinar river. This bridge replaced an older one (of Roman origin).
Following the course of the Molinar River, we arrive at the first of the waterfalls. Small, but strong in its fall of water.
We continue the route and we arrive at the viewpoint, from where we can contemplate some nice views of the Montes Obarenes-San Zadornil natural park and the spectacular waterfall that It runs along the side of the small town.
A nice tour that complements perfectly the visit to the castle, bridge and hanging houses of Frías.
