Did you know that... Valdelafuente

 

It is located right on the Way of Saint James, a few kilometres from the capital of León. Although little of its history has reached us, it seems to have been an ancient settlement. Its name could refer to an old fountain of possible medieval or earlier origin, located next to the church. Like all the villages in the town hall to which it belongs, it formed part of the Brotherhood of La Sobarriba.

To discover What to see in Valdelafuente?

 

The architecture of the houses in Valdelafuente is traditional in the area, although its proximity to the city is noticeable. Its parish church is dedicated to the patron saint of the locality San Juan Bautista, of which it has a Baroque image. A precious little Gothic Virgin from the end of the 13th century to the beginning of the 14th century, which was a real jewel and which the village displayed, can be found in the museum of the cathedral of León.

Curiosities

 

After passing the hill of Valdelafuente, there is a true landmark of the Way, the Alto del Portillo, gateway to the nearby city of León. Here in the past there was a stone cross that has been moved to the Plaza de San Marcos and to which the figure of a tired pilgrim has been added.
