At the entrance to Villafranca del Bierzo, town of churches, monasteries, convents and fine buildings, stands this Parador, the leading tourist accommodation in the fascinating El Bierzo district. It is surrounded by mountains covered with cherry and fig trees, slopes dotted with chestnuts, poplars and small farms. The building is clad in stone and slate, in the vernacular style of the region. The interior exudes all theelegance, class and comfort of a contemporary building, especially the large restaurant, café and guest lounge. This last room is a particularly pleasant spot to meet and chat. Large windows in the guest rooms offer extraordinary views of the northwestern El Bierzo district and southern Ancares Mountains. In the garden you can enjoy the seasonal swimming pools, one of which has a sauna with ice fountain.

The pilgrimage route to Compostela stops for a brief rest in Villafranca del Bierzo, offering a small taste of what lies ahead in the Galician capital. Santiago Church; the famous Los Tejedores (Weavers) neighborhood; La Anunciada, a building constructed atop the ruins of an old pilgrim hospital; and the collegiate church are just some of the important sights for visitors.

Outside town, nature offers up gorgeous picture postcard views. 20 minutes away by car, you will discover Las Médulas de Carucedo, a historic site and one of the most stunning landscapes in the province of León. Without a doubt, it is the jewel of El Bierzo. Because of its unique features, this spectacular reddish landscape, which was a gold mine in Roman times, has been declared a World Heritage Site. And because of its historical importance, it is also a cultural park.

The Way of St. James has bestowed on Villafranca del Bierzo a location you will not want to miss the chance to discover. Pay us a visit. You won't be disappointed.
