Ponferrada is a small city in the north-west of Spain in the Autonomous Community of Castilla y León. It is one of my favourite small cities and I have been there on 4 occasions over the years.
It's a manageable city close to fantastic bodegas and the food is not bad either.
Definitely worth a visit if coming to Spain along with other cities in the area like Lugo, Astorga, and León.
