Free Tour of the mysteries and legends 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 of the mysteries and legends of Ponferrada, we will visit the historic city of Ponferrada , but we will not make the typical visit , but rather we will tell the most curious and mysterious facts about our city and even our region. Lots of legends and anecdotes that make it a must see.
The visit begins at the indicated time right in front of the Templar Castle , where we will explain who they were, and all the mysteries that surrounded them. We will continue surrounding the castle until we reach the Plaza de la Virgen de la Encina , where we will tell you several legends about this virgin and also about the Camino de Santiago. We will enter the abandoned streets of the city to learn stories from the Franco era and the war, with women as protagonists. We will continue walking between graffiti and abandonment until we reach the old 16th century prison of the city. To finish the visit, we will go to the Plaza del Ayuntamiento where we will show you the Order of the Golden Fleece , little known but very mysterious. We will put the icing on the cake and the end with the black story of the Nevenka case, a former councilor of the city council who unfortunately suffered abuse of all kinds.
