Medina del Campo is located in the centre of an extensive plain to the South of the River Duero, in the central area of Castilla y León. The topographical uniformity is one of the most notable features of this space, which changes the further East you go, where the slopes of the high plateaux stand out within a landscape which singles out the beds, often boxed-in, of the principal rivers, Adaja and Eresma, with the Zapardiel and Trabancos being of much lesser significance.
The Lands of Medina cosnsist of a territory in which farming has dominated the landscape for generations and in which the huge swathes of open fields dedicated to farming have replaced, almost completely, any remains of natural vegetation which, through its rarity and contrast within a homogenous environment, stands out most particularly when the characteristic small patches and pine forests appear, which become more abundant towards the south-east of the region, practically in Tierra de Pinares.
This is a well-communicated land which occupies a central position within the Southern ambit of the Region. Located to the South-east of Valladolid and close to the capital, it is the region with most provincial frontiers in the whole of Castilla y León: to the west Zamora and Salamanca, Ávila to the south and Segovia to the South-east.
The geographical location of Medina del Campo makes privileged communication possible, as from here you can both depart for and arrive from for any other location.
