Cacabelos is located in the center of El Bierzo. This area is widely known for its white wine.
The first settlement was founded by King Alfonso IX in the 10th century. After a devastating earthquake, the town was rebuilt in the 12th century.
The Camino Santiago enters Cacabelos from the East passing the Hermitage of San Roque and later the church of Santa Maria.
Continuing our way through town we reach the bridge over River Cúa, where you can have a refreshing swim in. Near the bridge, you can see the beautifully renovated building of an old mill with the olive press in front.
Another attraction of Cacabelos is the Sanctuary of la Quinta Angustia. Inside the building, the altar shows the baby Jesus playing cards with San Antonio de Padua.
