CASTRILLO DE LOS POLVAZARES


This   historic   village  is   considered  one  of  the  most  beautiful  in  all  of  Spain.  

We  are  located   in  the beautiful  "Maragateria"  just  at  the  foot  of  the  mountains  leading  into  the  Bierzo.

Pilgrims  will  find  us  7km  after  Astorga  in  the  province  of  Castilla  y  Leon.  

The  village is  entirely  built  using   local  stones   rich  in  iron,  giving  the  stones  beautiful  red,  orange,  golden hues.  This  contrasts  to  the  doors,  and  windows  painted  green,  blue  and  red.  The  village  sparkles  in  the  Spanish  sunlight  and  the  stones   seem  to  catch  fire and  glow  at  dusk.

The  people  of  the  village, known as  "Maragatos"  are  proud  of  their  traditions  and  customs. You  can  see  their  beautiful  traditional  dresses  and  dances  every  year at  the  "La  Magdalena"  festivities.  Their  patron  Saint  Mary  Magdalene is  celebrated   at  the  end  of  July.
