San Pedro de Zamudia is a Spanish village of the municipality of Morales de Valverde,[2] located in the province of Zamora, in the autonomous community of Castile and León. As of 2012, it had a population of 74.[1]

Overview[edit]

It's busiest during the summer months, where people come from other surrounding areas to the town, where they might have grown up or have family from there.

In San Pedro existed a convent for both nuns and monks. The present church is located within a very fertile lot of land where agriculture exists. The outside of the church is one of the more significant points in the espadaña (bell-gable), and the interior, as it could not be another way, has its larger altarpiece and a baptismal.

The result of this, is that the houses are very sunny. The layout is very irregular, without any type of urban planning. When not existing stone quarries, the traditional houses are of marinates.

Geography[edit]

San Pedro de Zamudia and the Valverde Valley is located in the northeast of the province of Zamora. It belongs to the Judicial Party of Benavente, which is about 20 km away. It is 67 km far from Zamora and 260 to Madrid.
