León The Essential
Recommended
The former capital of the kingdom of León stands on the right bank of the Bernesga in the heart of the Meseta. The elegant Ordoño II and San Marcos avenues head away from the impressive Plaza de Toros and the San Marcos esplanade, converging in the historic centre, where the towers of the cathedral and the church of St Isidro, act as beacons for pilgrims. Leon's bustling districts and maze of streets have a genuinely down-to-earth feel, especially the Barrio Húmedo.
