All the secrets of Ponferrada

Be amazed by the charm of the medieval wonder this city exudes, located at the foot of an impressive Knights Templar castle, and delight your senses with the excellent cuisine and natural beauty only the capital of the Bierzo region can offer.

Treat yourself to a fantastic holiday in Ponferrada and discover one of the most beautiful cities in Leon. You’ll feel as if you’ve travelled back to the 12th century, when the Order of Solomon’s Temple settled in this town and decided to build a Roman fortress, the superb Knights Templar castle that towers over the River Sil to this day. Cross its drawbridge, explore the weapons room, stables, and various towers, and before you know it, you’ll be imagining yourself in medieval times. If you are interested in the exciting world of the Knights Templar, you should definitely visit the Templar Library and the Ponferrada Centre of Investigation and Historical Study, where you can immerse yourself in the exciting history of the medieval order.

At the foot of the castle, you’ll see the city’s old town. Take advantage of the fantastic package holidays to Ponferrada to go exploring, and you’ll be amazed by the clock tower, as it is all that remains of the old walled part of the city. Also popular is the Museo del Bierzo, a museum about the Bierzo region, which is very close to the Basílica de Nuestra Señora de la Encina, the most important church in Ponferrada. You should also take time to visit the church of Santo Tomás de las Ollas, a Mozarabic hermitage that is located on the outskirts of the city.

The city also has excellent transport links with the rest of the Spanish mainland, meaning it couldn’t be easier to find cheap trips to Ponferrada. You can choose to come on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, as it is located along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. If you prefer, you can also opt to go by bus or train, as well as by plane, as its nearest airport is just 5 miles away, in Leon. However you get there, you should definitely rent a car to explore the Bierzo region and the rest of the province of Leon. What are you waiting for?
