In the area


Foncebadón is a Spanish village in the municipality of Santa Colomba de Somoza, in the province of León. The village, situated on a popular pilgrimage route called the Way of St. James, flourished during the Middle Ages, offering shelter and hospitality to the pilgrims who passed through on their way to Santiago de Compostela. According to local tradition, the village was granted a tax exemption in return for planting 800 stakes in the ground to mark the path. In the 10th century, Ramiro II of León convened a religious council in the village, and in the 11th or 12th century, the hermit Guacelmo established a hospital and a church.Events such as the 16th-century Protestant Reformation and the early 19th-century Napoleonic Wars, along with the construction of new roads and railways, led to a decline in the number of pilgrims passing through the village.

El Acebo

El Acebo is a very small village on the Camino de Santiago in the Province of León in the Autonomous community of Castille-León. The village is named after the European Holly. The village is typical of mountain villages of upper Bierzo, with houses built from and covered in slate (the typical building material of the region). Another characteristic of the homes are the street-facing wooden balconies, that sometimes reach outside of an outdoor staircase. According to oral tradition the residents in the Middle Ages were against installation and maintenance of 800 stakes to mark the pilgrimage route (which is especially important in this area due to snow), which came as tribute from the king.

Compludo is a locality in the municipality of Ponferrada, in the province of León, Spain. St. Fructuosus of Braga founded a monastery here in the 7th century, but it has not survived. Ulick Ralph Burke wrote that the “country round about Compludo is one of the most interesting in the history of religion in the Peninsula… It is the birthplace of Spanish monarchism –the Thebaïd of the Peninsula- and once rivalled the holiest districts of Palestine in the number of its saints and monasteries.” One of the routes of the Way of St. James passed through here to the Valle del Silencio.
