It is the economic and culture engine of the whole Bierzo and the second city of the province, as well as an excellent place from which to get to know the beautiful Bierzo region.

To visit the old town, small in size, it is recommend starting at Avenida del Castillo at the height of Temple Square, next to the Castle, as a few steps further you will find the small church of San Andrés del Castillo from the XVIIth century, with views to the castle of Ponferrada, which is of Templar origin.

If you return to the square and take Gil y Carrasco street, you will pass before the House of Shields where the museum of the Radio is installed. At the end of the road there is the tourist office, and from there you just have to climb a few meters to get to the Basilica of Nuestra Señora de la Encina, a Renaissance temple which houses the patron saint of the town, Virgen de la Encina.

Santuario de la Virgen

In 1914, Virgen del Camino obtained the statement of patron of the Leon region from Rome. And on June 7, 1917, Pope Benedict XI authorized the canonical coronation of the image of Virgen del Camino, starting a new overwhelming and sincere devotion that filled the shrine as before and crowded the esplanade in pilgrimages, returning thus to the memory of Christian people the name of the Mother as Our Lady of the way.

Surroundings

The first knowledge of the existence of St. Nicholas date from the late twelfth century, the village probably existed well before, but the only data currently available place us exactly in 1195 when a document attests that a leper hospital existed in our town.

This hospital was founded by D. Tello Pérez de Meneses, very influential at the time, who entrusted the Augustinian monks of St. Mary of Trianos wit its control.

The hospital took care of 13 lepers and pilgrims of Camino de Santiago, was a priory of Trianos monastery, but became so important as the monastery, as it owned much land in the county and several mills in the area, had charters of King Alfonso VI and its economy was sustained by donations and properties of very influential people in the society of Castilla at that time.

Currently there is no building in town to remember the existence of this hospital, although it is said that a column that is in the village cemetery could be a vestige of the building.

There was also a Templar church unfortunately disappeared, the current one dates from the XIIIth century and you can admire in it a nice Baroque altarpiece.

Documents justifying this story are found in the National Library, section Clergy, folders 1737-1739.

The city center lies in the valley of the stream of Templars, one of many place names in the area that recall the presence of an important settlement of the monk-knights of the Order of the Temple in this area of Castilla.

During the Middle Ages, Ledigos highlighted as a place offered to St. James by Urraca. In fact, in the year 1028 the entire village was donated to the church of Santiago de Compostela. That is why the town has a church dedicated to St. James, which was renovated in the seventeenth century and is situated on a hill from where you can see the next town, Terradillos de los Templarios, where the locals still have many legends about the mysterious order of religious warriors, as this population, which now belongs to the municipality of Ledigos was jurisdictional territory of the order of the Temple.
