Former 14th century Royal Hospital for pilgrims, commissioned in 1377 by the Queen of Castile, Juana Manuel, spouse of King Enrique II, to serve the poor and those passing through Villafranca Montes de Oca.
Recently restored as a three-star hotel, it is located in a quiet, peaceful setting. The portal features the stone-carved coat of arms of the Catholic Monarchs.
Our restaurant offers an extensive set menu, with two dining rooms decorated with the utmost detail. However, if you want to relax in a friendly atmosphere with your travelling companions, then the cafeteria is the ideal place for you. Here you can enjoy snacks, lunches and evening meals in a more informal atmosphere.

Ten years ago, the idea came about to locate, in one of the most suitable sites in the city of Burgos, a set of scientific and cultural equipment to disseminate the adventure of human evolution. This great cultural project, the Cultural Complex of Human Evolution, groups together a specialised research centre (which was already operational), an auditorium for mixed use, for culture and congresses, operating since 2011, and, halfway between the two, the Museum of Human Evolution, that has just opened its doors on the 13th July, inaugurated by her RH Queen Sophia.
The manganese ore mines at Villafranca were the first ones in Castilla and León and, together with the mines of Toledo, they are the oldest in Spain. The mines operated from 1799 until 1965. For many years, this was the most productive manganese exploitation in Spain and was also of the highest quality.
