    Fuente Romana & more

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dont expect any shops, cafes or restaurants in Campo ! It seems to be just a village of farmers, but the town of Ponferrada is next to this village anyway and it has 65.000 inhabitants and shops of all kinds.
    The only place of interest in Campo was an old fountain of roman times ( watch out for the signposts for "Fuente Romana"), but I did not go there, as it was a bit far from the Camino.

    templar castle

    the top attraction of ponferrada is the knights templar castle. it is currently under renovation and not open to the public, (as of 2009) but you can walk around the outer walls. a very impressive structure. i happened to be there on a rainy day and my pictures do not do this interesting building justice.

    When you walk the Camino through Campo

    by globetrott Updated Sep 28, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are on the Camino Campo is a tiny sidestep on your way to Ponferrada and it will cost you not more than 2 extra km maybe, BUT you will certainly enjoy it much more than walking along the main road with a lot of trafic and the sidewalk just next to the road like shown in my last picture here !
    You will not find any cafes, restaurants, albergues or hotels in Campo, but there are more than enough of them in Ponferrada !
