Restorations were made at different times. It is a national monument since 1939.

It is set in the ancient Roman road that ran from Leon (Legio Septima Gemina) to Astorga which was in Roman times the capital of the province of Asturica Augusta.

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.
