Santo Tomas de las Ollas

Year of past OR future Camino
2019
Our virtual Olvidado thread has been talking about this remarkable tenth C church, and how to get there. But it turns out it is a mere 1.4km from the Albergue San Nicolas de Flue in Ponferrada, well within the range of an average peregrino as a side trip:

So if you plan to spend the night in Ponferrada, it's worth checking it out! I've been through there three times and had no idea. Next time!

Frances, autumn/winter; 2004, 2005-2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
Way back when we were doing the virtual Olvidado thread, I had written to the Ponferrada tourism office asking about visiting the church. They have just responded with the name and number to call.

Manuela, 606 13 52 11

She lives nearby and has the keys and is apparently very eager to show the church to pilgrims.
That is good news for future visitors.
The neighborhood surrounding the church has many new buildings. Nearby is a good simple popular resto La Fragata at Calle Medio, 102.
