Pradanos de Ojeda is located at an
altitude of about 945 m. (Church) above sea level. Located in a
transition zone between the plains and gentle hills of the cultivated
land and the top of the mountain ranges to the North, not far from here,
in the Palentina Mountains, we can find peaks up to 2500 m in height.
The climate is therefore typically
continental as corresponds to the whole of the Castilian plateau. It can
be very dry and hot in summer (June to September) and very cold in
winter (from November to March), the rain and snow are common during the
winter months, as well as the heavy night frost, with very low
"ya salió el aire" ...
there comes the air!
However in Pradanos, possibly due
to the topography of the place and the proximity of the mountains,
during the summer months it tends to be very common that, in the evening
the wind blows from the North. This tends to produce a typical
exclamation point between the neighbors, "there comes the air" and a
significant decline in temperature, with what there is to use a sweater
or jacket, in any way the nights tend to be fresh, ideal for great night
sleep, though, with a blanket.
