Close to our rural cottage in San Juan de la Mata
If you wish to have a drink and a nice time we recommend – again – the cafetería of the Palacio de Canedo, in Canedo, where you can enjoy drinking a chocolate with cream while looking at the beautiful valley extending itself down from the palace.
In the cafetería of the Moncloa of San Lázaro, in Cacabelos, you shall have a good time too, gazing at the decoration, a nice example of the traditional architecture of the Bierzo.
The Taberna of Che, in the small city of Carracedelo has a nice traditional patio in a warm and friendly atmosphere where you can have a drink, together with a slice of French toast or other snack. They also have a wide variety of Tapas during the weekend.
In Toral de Merayo, very close to Ponferrada, is la Tetería de Toral, where you can choose and taste warm and cold infusions from a wide list, immersed in a magical scenery which will take you straight to “a Thousand and one Nights” tale scenery.
In the old quarter of Ponferrada, (Plaza del Ayuntamiento y Calle del Reloj), you shall find the life district where you’ll find a place to have a drink and some tapas. You shall not miss El bodegón, where you’ll enjoy its very famous hot potatoes and mussels, drinking with it a special cocktail of the region. If you taste it you shall never forget it (Bierzo Libre)! We recommend that you go on a wine tour including free snacks. Do not miss the snacks of Siddhartha. If you like to have a drink late at night you can go to the Sala Tararí, you can expect to find a friendly atmosphere and where they frequently give live concerts. All of this is in la Calle del Reloj. Very close you’ll find la Plaza Tierno Galván, with some of the life bars of the city like La Patatuca and La Destilería (with tasty snacks) .
Continuing the wine tour in Ponferrada, we reach the inner center of the city and la Plaza de Fernando Miranda, where we’ll have a wide choice of bars where to have a drink.
