Walking the Streets of Ponferrada

Sunday 8th June 2014

Our hotel on Ponferrada, Hotel Aroi Bierzo Plaza, is located at one corner of Plaza Mayor where the City Hall is located. Just to the right of the hotel is the lovely old clock tower. We walked passed the clock tower on the narrow cobbled-stone lane lined by bistros, bars and tourist shops.
