Toro The Essential
Toro was built on the banks of the Duero, in the middle of a vast plain. Wheat is grown north of the river on the Tierra del Pan, while vineyards extend to the south, on the Tierra del Vino. Most of the town's Romanesque churches, built of brick and interesting for their Mudéjar decoration, have suffered a great deal with age. However, the collegiate church, which was built in limestone, is still in relatively good condition.
