In the heart of Ponferrada is located the nice Plaza Ayuntamiento, here we find the city-hall, a large square with benchs , for locals walks in the evening, some cafes, and restaurant, and also a nice clocktower.

Pretty and functional. Worth passing through or having a drink or meal here. Not the most amazing but nice enough and if you are in Ponferrada anyway then definitely a place to go.
