  • Any corner of this village is worth admiring and enjoying, walking through its streets transports you to other times, it is the perfect union between nature and its streets. It is very much appreciated how its people have kept their people alive and cared for.

  • Peñalba de Santiago is one of the most beautiful villages in the province. It is an hour from Ponferrada and about two from León, and is undoubtedly among the most curious and peculiar of the entire Spanish geography. It is very small, just four interlocking streets, with stone houses and slate roofs, wooden balconies and much, but much charm. It houses an authentic jewel, the Mozarabic Church that justifies the visit on its own, as it is full of interesting little details and is worth knowing. The explanations of the guides make you appreciate those details even more. The environment is beautiful, although you have to be patient because to get to the village you have to go on narrow and in some cases dangerous roads, so you have to drive carefully. The village has the possibility to stay and eat there, although it is advisable to book before going because the squares are not many.
