Information about Leon

León is undoubtedly one of the most historic and beautiful cities in Castilla y León. It has so much to see that sometimes a day will be too short. Its old town is pedestrianized, so you can walk through it perfectly and discover impressive monuments that bear witness to more than 2,000 years of history.

But not everything is history in León. “There are so many taverns in León that their number scares me”, said the couplet. Traditionally a bartending and drinking town, it has an old quarter with a large number of taverns, taverns, wine cellars and wine cellars. The famous Barrio Húmedo rivals the Cathedral and San Isidoro as a place of interest for tourists and pilgrims.

What to see and do in Leon

Ancha Street

The Calle Ancha is the neuralgic point of the city of León and the most touristic area. It is located in the middle of the two parts that form the tourist center of León. On one side we will find the Cathedral and the wall and several important buildings and squares, on the other side of the street we will walk through the main square of León and its mythical Barrio Húmedo.

Wet District

Going through León and not going for tapas is a crime. If the city is known for anything, apart from its cathedral, it is for the custom of free tapas with every drink. To practice this custom, there is nothing better than having dinner in this way in the Húmedo neighbourhood. From the labyrinth of narrow, medieval streets, the Plaza Mayor and the Plaza de San Martín stand out as the centre of the nightlife and tapas area. The Plaza del Grano is also impressively beautiful.
