Castillo de los Templarios reviews
We enjoyed the self-guided visit through the castle, the views in all directions, and the exhibits. Highly recommended if one is passing through Ponferrada. more »
I had the castle penciled down for a visit. The exterior impresses much more then its interior. In fact, the internal area is just a field surrounded by the walls. However, it is worth the visit... more »
Entrance fee is 6€ and free entry on every Wednesday! Is a good place to stop by for a visit if you’re interested in history of the place and way of life in the past. They are having ongoing restoration of the castle bit by bit, so maybe during time of your visit you might be restricted to certain small parts of the castle. However, most parts are all done up, I believe. Many small exhibitions around the castle explaining to you the history of the region and so on. Nice views along the walls of the castle.
This is the castle you dream about as a child. The front makes me wonder if this is the castle on which Disney based his castle design. Even though they are working on parts of it, the work doesn't detract from the experience. We happened to go on a free day, but I would have paid. Shouldn't be missed if you're in Ponferrada.
