For our September Camino desktop calendar we have picked an image of one of our favourite and most impressive monuments along the French Way, the famous Camino Francés: it is the iconic Los Templarios or Templars Castle in Ponferrada, capital of El Bierzo.
This magnificent castle was originally a hill fort and settlement by the Sil River. Both the castle and town were donated to the Templar knights by King Alfonso IX in the 12th century so they would protect pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela.
