Where you’ll be

Peñalba de Santiago, Castilla y León, Spain

20 kilometers from Ponferrada, the capital of Bierzo, is Peñalba de Santiago, a nucleus of traditional architecture preserved as few. The houses are arranged around the Mozarabic church of the 10th century, offering a stamp that leaves an impression on the traveller. It is a place full of historical significance, art and rural tradition in the center of the so-called Bercian Thebaida, set of monasteries and small monasteries of Anacoreta monks, such as San Genadio, who left the Episcopal See of Astorga for the retreat in this beautiful and secluded corner.

Peñalba de Santiago is located at 1100 meters of altitude at the foot of the Aquilian Mountains and its majestic valleys of Friguera and Silencio, from where the water was carried, through canals, for the gold deposit exploited by the Romans in Las Médulas, now declared a World Heritage Site and an essential visit in the region.

The views from Peñalba de Santiago invite us to discover the Valley of Silence and the Cave of San Genadio on foot on a pleasant one-hour circular walk through the heart of its lush forests.

The circular route of the Tebaida Berciana offers beautiful landscapes and allows us to get to know the Roman canals and the Monastery of San Pedro de Montes, up to the neighboring village of Montes de Valdueza.
