Fortified tower of the XIV century, the only vestige which remains of what Turienzo Castle was, located in a strategic position: from the fortress, the moving of gold from mines of Leon was looked after, and especially when it belonged to the Templars, the road leading to Santiago was controlled. Currently, it belongs to the Osorio although it is used for tourism.
