Noceda del bierzo leon

Francisco luzón santander

After the Asturian period, with the arrival of the Romans, the name of the town of Noceda would presumably have its origin, which would derive from the Latin nux (nut), meaning Noceda, a place abundant in nuts. Precisely from Roman times dates a votive altar found in Noceda and currently in the Museo de los Caminos in Astorga, which has the inscription Cossue N/idoledio / Flavinus / Flavi a(ram) p(osuit).
In the fifteenth century, with the reduction of cities with vote in Cortes from the Cortes of 1425, Noceda became represented by León, which made it part of the province of León in the Modern Age, being located within it in the party of Ponferrada.[6] In the Contemporary Age, Noceda became part of the province of León.
Already in the Contemporary Age, in the context of the War of Independence, the Junta Suprema de León, headed by General Luis de Sosa, came to provisionally establish its headquarters in Noceda, meeting in the town on January 3, 1809.[7] In 1821, in 1821, Noceda became a part of the province of León.
Later, in 1821 Noceda was one of the localities that became part of the province of Villafranca or Vierzo,[8] although when this lost its provincial status at the end of the Liberal Triennium, in the division of 1833 Noceda was attached to the province of León, within the León Region.[9]

Noceda del bierzo – el rincón del cura (the priest’s corner)

We find the town of Noceda in the interior of the province of León, more specifically in the eastern part of the region of El Bierzo, in the Noceda Valley, a beautiful natural enclave irrigated by the waters of the Noceda River, a tributary of the Sil.
The parish church of Noceda, built in the 17th century, and the Ermita de las Chanas, erected during the 17th century, are of special interest.    Also, a walk through the foothills of the Sierra de Gistredo and the medicinal springs such as the Fuentes Medicinales de la Salud or the Fuentes del Rubio will be a good way to enjoy the magic of Noceda’s surroundings.
