Villafranca del Bierzo

Pages from the Travel Journal

A drawing from my travel journal made during a holiday in Northern Spain.

Brandy-tasting in the small mountain town Villafranca del Bierzo in Northern Spain. A few American pilgrims with swollen feet were taking a rest in the town, but other than that it was a very quiet place … with a very very fine collection of brandy ;)

One thought on “Villafranca del Bierzo

  1. We recommend before leaving town that you take the time to visit the Church of the convent of La Magdalena. Over the “Meseta lucense”, the Lugo Plateau, you will pass through many hamlets dotted along areas of cultivated land, grazing pastures and woodlands and view the first “horreos”, typical raised grain silos. A relatively easy walk until your descent, crossing the Dam of Portomarin where you can see ruins of the ancient flooded village, and into the town for your nights accommodation.
