Templar Castle of Ponferrada
The Castle of Ponferrada is a unique site, with a convulsed and extensive history that has its origins in the Celts, Romans and Visigoths. However, it owes its name to the León royalty who ceded the castle to the Templars until 1312 when the order was dissolved. Some time later, the castle's architecture slowly began deteriorating until 1924 when its reconstruction started. Its Torre del Homenaje, together with the coats of arms and shields that it still houses, are this castle's greatest features.
