What is Leon Like?

Leon is packed with history, stunning monuments and is home to one of the most spectacular cathedrals in Spain. Sight-seers should head straight to the 12th century Leon Cathedral which is stunning by day or night. A holiday here is incomplete without a visit to the Casa de Botines, designed by Gaudi, or the beautiful Romanic church of Basilica de San Isidoro and the magnificent Hostal San Marcos which went from pilgrim shelter to monastery to prison to grand modern hotel. Returning visitors and pilgrims love to visit the riverside Parque de la Candamia and enjoy the chorizo, the morcilla and the botillo in the markets in the Barro Humedo, or 'the wet district', which is the centre of Leons bustling nightlife. Culture lovers should swing by the moden MUSAC contemporary art gallery that is designed not just to exhibit art, but also to encourage interaction, communication and the involvement of visitors in the artists work.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals

This is a city with plenty of energy, and you'll see it in the ancient streets of the Barrio Humedo at night. Go bar hopping and buy only a single drink at each stall. Drinks generally come with free tapas, and it's customary to sample each bar's specialities. Be a part of the unusual Genarin celebrations on Holy Thursday night, get drunk and make offerings to the alcoholic furrier named Genaro. You'll also never seem out of place if you're walking around with a rucksack and a pilgrim staff here. The locals are known to eat late, so keep your hunger at bay with tapas before the taverns serve dinner, though there are some that cater to hungry pilgrims from 7pm onwards. Book your Leon hotel with Hotels.com and find the best accommodation to suit your travel plans for any season.
