We enjoyed our visit to the historic Templar Castle. It had a great display of history through time in that area.
It also housed an amazing collection of very old books, sadly we couldn't read Spanish but could definitely appreciate their antiquity & the hand-painted illustrations. We found a walk through the City Centre was interesting also with many extended families enjoying Sunday night out. We were walking The Camino de Santiago & had easily forwarded excess luggage from Astorga to the Ponferrada bus depot, which we found easily, and then forwarded onto Santiago. All personnel involved in this process were very helpful. The only problem for us was that the Bus Depot was closed Saturday afternoon & Sunday (no-one told us this) so we were forced to have an extra day in Ponferrado which was restful & enjoyable.
