Free Tour through the historic area of Ponferrada
We are the tour guides of El Bierzo. Our passion is to tell and explain the history of our origins and monuments.
In this Free Tour we will visit the historic area of Ponferrada, a city full of mysteries and things to discover. We will know its heart, the most beautiful and oldest part of the city.
The visit begins at the indicated time in the Castle of the Templars , we will meet the Order of the Temple and the reason for this majestic castle. We will continue to discover the heart of the city and the history of very symbolic buildings such as the House of Shields. We will continue until we enter the Plaza de la Encina to continue along the most beautiful street in the city. We will immerse ourselves in the Middle Ages as we walk along its ancient roads to reach the famous Town Hall square where the waffle maker awaits us. We will see the most photographed clock in the city and we will continue to see remains of the old wall until we reach the starting point where we will end the visit.
In winter it is advisable to dress warmly since in Ponferrada the temperature can reach negative degrees with frost. In summer it is necessary to wear light and fresh clothing, water and sun protection, because temperatures can reach high values.
