Ponferrada, a beautiful city

This is not a village, it is a beautiful vibrant city, modern but with an old historic center, I'm enjoying it, although I will not be able to visit the many attraction.

The distance fron Acebo to Ponferrada is about 17 Kms, most of it in a down hill terrible path, after 8 Kms I was in Molinaseca a nice town with industrial complexes, food …

Rabanal del Camino to Ponferrada 32.14km

... which we originally found at Lake Tyers Beach) at the very top of the mound. The descent from this point was very steep and unstable. It took us most of the day to make our way down the mountain to reach 500m. We had to concentrate hard, it was tiring and hot from the sun. When we got off the mountain, we looked behind us and there was a massive cloud of smoke coming from what looked like the mountain we had just come from. There were three helicopters dropping water over the fire. ...

Pushing on to Ponferrada

... in the end. Ponferrada is a lot of a disappointment though. It's a big town, with a Knights Templar history. The Albergue (and there's only one, and my iPad insists on capitalising that word) is in a car park, which is how we almost missed it. It looked manageable at first, then the guy led us down into a basement that made the bleak monastery at St, Jean de Ortega look luxurious. Something like 40 awful green bunks in a chemical smelling basement with no windows. One big dorm ...

... br>
Ponferrada is on the banks of a river in the El Bierzo valley, completely surrounded by mountains, all of which have a fresh dusting of snow. Our hotel is on a lovely plaza in the Old Town, just a few meters from the 12th century Templar Castle for which the town is famous.

The town also has an interesting mining history, with the nearby Las Medulas Roman gold mining site on the World Heritage list.

Log: 1 hour 45 minutes. ...

Villadangos del Parama to Astorga

... free food and refreshments and a bed if required. He had an assortment of teas, dried fruits, fresh fruit, fresh orange juice, water and bread on his little cart and while we were there one of the locals from Astorga delivered an enormous tortilla for him to hand out. It contained potatoes, onion and capsicum and was absolutely delicious. There was also a three man film crew there from Chicago, who were doing a documentary on David and the passing parade ...

    Hotel Ponferrada, a little out of the Way

    This is a modern businessmen hotel with all the comforts and amenities that the traveler needs, a very efficient and competent hotel with a nice restaurant, good food, well served and presented.Excellent breakfast table at what seems to be the standard price for buffet breakfast €12-15. I only have a comment being that I was on a pilgrimage to Santiago, the hotel is a little away from the CAmino, about a 20-30 minutes walk from the Templars Castle and pilgrims albergue. This is not a problem and gives the visitor a chance to walk through a modern vibrant city in Northern Spain.
