Located on the road to Santiago, the Plaza Mayor will be your ideal place to rest. Everything is at hand to gather strength for the next stage. Bars, restaurants, shops. In the main square is the town hall and one of the most beautiful theaters in Spain. From the window you can see the intense passing of pilgrims or the crowded terraces where they gather to eat and drink.
Villafranca del Bierzo captivates the visitor with the beauty of the surroundings, watered by the abundant waters of the Burbia and the Valcárcel, with its monumental legacy and especially with the hospitality of its people, accustomed to giving refuge to the pilgrim since time immemorial, and to comfort spirit and its body with meats and perhaps also with its excellent wines, of recognized fame inside and outside the borders of Leon.
The whole Bierzo is wonderful. Enjoy its landscapes, its climate and the delicacies that the earth gives us. Any time is good to visit us; in spring its aromas of fields in full explosion, I did not stop trying the cherries; in summer when the temperature is more pleasant, enjoy a wine on any terrace, never too hot to sleep pleasantly; in autumn is when our land is more fertile, apples, pears, chestnuts, grapes; a wonderful multicolored landscape.
Do not miss Las Médulas, a world heritage site, El Valle del Silencio, the Sierra de Ancares, Biosphere Reserve, El Hayedo de Busmayor, and many other wonders with which we have been blessed.
