  • Templar castle with some impressive exterior. The interior allows you to enjoy wonderful views of Ponferrada, but still pending much restoration. Visit indispensable if you are by Leon. Wednesday admission is free, the same q for other monuments of the city. Obviously, Wednesday there is no availability of guided tour of the Castle.

  • Well preserved its towers and battlements with new annexes which do not detract the set. It is necessary to also flow the imagination, especially if you are travelling with children. It has a spectacular view of the city.
