The Pisuerga in Valladolid

The Pisuerga is a river in northern Spain and the second largest tributary of the Duero.

It rises to about 1620 meters above sea level at the Sierre de Peña Labra in the Cantabrian Mountains. Its source lies on the northern border of the province of Palencia in the autonomous community of Castile -Leon. The Pisuerga flows predominantly in the south and ends after about 283 kilometers behind the city of Valladolid in the Duero.

Since the 1950s, the water level of the river is very uniform. The reason for this is the great dam at Aguilar de Campoo which collects the water from the rain-rich upper valleys of the river. These regulations allowed a great expansion of irrigated land along the river course through the Castilian plateau.
