Ramparts of Leon

Grant Spangler

León is one of the oldest cities in Spain. Full of history and art, specially its Gothic Cathedral, the romanic church San Isidoro and San Marcos 5 star Hotel. MUSAC, the new contemporary art museum of Castille and León, is already the first museum specialised in video creation.

Enjoy the Barrio Humedo (the old area where you can eat, drink and dance till the morning) and eat the famous spicy fries in Casa Blas.

Must do:

1. Gothic Cathedral: most beautiful ancient glass windows in Europe

2. MUSAC: every 3-4 months they change the exhibition

3. San Isidoro: best romanic paintings on the wall

3. Hostal de San Marcos: 5 star, you can sleep in the bed of the King

4. Barrio húmedo (from 13:00 till morning)

5. Food: Casa Blas, Vivaldi and other tipical restaurants (ask for cecina, morcilla and chorizo)
