cabecera villafranca 
  
  

This municipality occupies part of the National Reserve of the Ancares Leoneses. The whole area is covered by forests and fields thanks to a wet and mild climate.

The village is full of vineyards. Villafranca is well known in Spain and around the world thanks to the good work of the wineries’ owners and their superb wines.

The Celts inhabited these lands, testified by several ‘Celtic forts’ such as Redoniña, on the Valcarce River. Afterwards, the Romans came and took all the gold they found in the Burbia River, which crosses the municipality.

The town hall is located in Villafranca del Bierzo – 3,945 inhabitants – right on the Way of St James.
