Ponferrada questions...

by whitty1

Hello

I was assigned to live with a host family in Ponferrada for a month or so, starting in June 2005. I thought i was going to be in Madrid..but am now told Ponferrada. I have never heard of this place before and was wondering if anyone has been there or what there is to do, if there is a near nightlife in or around the area, how the people are (ect.)

If anyone could help me out, that would be fabulous!

Thanks so much,
Whitney

It appears you are basically in Leon, which has some information here on VT. I had a friend from the Galacia area, but she said there were no opportunities so she moved to Mexico City. It is very quiet and laid back. You will probably want to do trips to Bilboa (Guggenhiem Museum of Mod Art), which at least has some things happening. The overall area up to and into the Basque country is very pretty and interesting to explore. You are 2-3 hour drive from Pamplona (it may be longer) where the have the San Fermin Festival (Running with the Bulls) from July 7 to the 14th. San Sebastian is a fun place to visit but is also a good drive away. There are also the Caves at Alta Mira (sp) by the coast.

I have been spending some summers in a village very close to Ponferrada and I know a little about it. Ponferrada is the second town of the province of Leon. It is relatively big and it has all the services of a big town: hospital, shopping centers, internet cafes etc. There are some important monuments such as the Temple order castle and there are good excursions for example to "Las Medulas". Life there is very provincial and quiet. Sorry but it is bad connected with Bilbao. Madrid is closer in terms of connections.
Apparently it seems to be a very boring place, but oh surprise there is one thing that makes Ponferrada something special. It is one of the more important towns of the "Camino de Santiago" (Way of St James), so you can find mainly in summertime thousands of pilgrims (basically young people for all over the world) who crowd the streets, bars and restaurants of the old town and this is in the evening and nights. With this clues you can find more information in the net.

Greetings

I spent one summer in Ponferrada, don't worry about nightlife, you are going to enjoy it. It's a small place but it has lot of life. Ponferrada is really hot in summer, there you can go to the beach but you can go to public swimming-pools. From there you can visit the North of Spain, the coast is wonderful and in Coruna, sometimes, you can enjoy free concerts on the beach. I'm living in León in this moment.

Travel Tips for León

Cloisters

by SirRichard

There are many cloisters in Leon, as there are many convents and monasteries around. I like them specially as they are oasis of peace and tranquility and I like the central courtyard with those plants and fountains.
This one is in the San Marcos Monastery in Leon city.

Garden at the Posada del Marques

by SirRichard

At the hostel where we stayed in Carrizo de la Ribera (Posada del Marques) there was a charming little garden in the backyard, where you could find a little brook, some old tres, grass... it was really cold when we went, but I guess in summer it must be a perfect place for a siesta!

Astorga's Cathedral

by SirRichard

Not as impressive as the one in Leon Capital but still a impressive gothic monument. The facade was rebuilt later and it was made in a different reddish stone.
Astorga is a medium town in the A6 highway from Madrid.

León

by Aitana

León is famous for its monumental buildings. There is a masterpiece of each of the different architectural styles:

The Real Colegiata de San Isidoro holds the Royal Pantheon, one of the best samples of Romanesque paintings.

The Cathedral is one of the most beautiful Gothic churches in Spain.

San Marcos was built in the 16th century (Renaissance). It was a monastery and hospital, belonging to the Military Order of Santiago. Now it houses a Parador.

Later, Antoni Gaudí brought the Modernism with his Casa de Botines.

The MUSAC, the Castile and León Museum of Contemporary Art, was inaugurated in 2005 and houses artworks from the latest generation of artists, between 1992 and 2012.
