El castillo de los Templarios bajo la niebla

Taken the 08/01/12
When in 1178 Ponferrada becomes dependent on the Templars by gift of the Kings of Leon, the Templars find a small fort that was originally celtic “castrum” and later Roman citadel.
They expand and improve the castle as a defense of  pilgrim’s Camino de Santiago, being finished in 1282.
The castle we know today is the result of a long series of enlargements.
The alterations and additions range from the first near the square in the early twelfth century, until the last areasbuilt in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
Later additions, such as stables in 1848, and the many reforms undertaken since the early twentieth century, havecontributed to the complexity of the whole, as we know it today.
The shields and coats of arms of those who occupied and helped in its construction are proof of its different stages.

Cuando en 1178 Ponferrada pasa a depender de la Orden del Temple por donación de los reyes leoneses, los templarios se encuentran una pequeña fortaleza que fue en su origen castro y posteriormente ciudadela romana.
Ellos la amplían y mejoran como defensa del Camino de Santiago, estando acabada en 1282.
El Castillo que hoy conocemos es el resultado de una larga serie de ampliaciones.
Las reformas y añadidos van desde la primera cerca de la planta cuadrada de principios del siglo XII, hasta las últimas zonas construidas a finales del siglo XV y principios del XVI.  
Posteriores incorporaciones, como las caballerizas en 1848, y las numerosas reformas llevadas a cabo desde principios del siglo XX, han contribuido a la complejidad del conjunto, tal y como lo conocemos hoy en día.
Los escudos y blasones de quienes lo ocuparon y contribuyeron en su construcción son prueba de sus diferentes etapas.
