About the Tour

Our Free Tour through the city begins in the Plaza de Catedral, where we will talk about the beautiful stained glass windows that run through the Gothic temple , about architects and restorations , about its stages. A Gothic temple from the mid-13th century, built over the old Roman baths.

We will continue our route through the old town of León, where the famous Barrio Húmedo awaits us , to show us its streets full of bars and nightlife venues, where you can enjoy its varied tapas, (potatoes, jerky, blood sausage, soups of garlic, minced meat, croquettes, sausage, etc.), being a free gift from the Leonese hoteliers with each consumption.

And in the medieval heart are the squares of San Martín and Mayor , where we will talk about traditional markets, craft guilds, the old Jewish quarter and the most traditional gastronomy (typical dishes, DO León wines, craft beer and local vermouth. ). A few meters away we will stop, in the Plaza de los Condes de Luna (old Food Market and remains of the old palace), stories from the Kingdom of León, legends and mysteries await you.

We will walk along Ancha Street , the most touristy in the city center, until we reach the Plaza de San Marcelo (patron of León), where we will talk about the Old Town Hall, the church of the Roman centurion, the Casa Botines by Antonio Gaudí and the Palace de los Guzmanes (current provincial council).

To finish, we will go to the "fashionable neighborhood", where the people of León are going to have a few beers in the evening , always accompanied by those elaborate tapas, which make the Romantico an essential area to wander around.

Our favorite place is undoubtedly the Royal Basilica of San Isidoro , where the pilgrims who were doing the Camino de Santiago , cross the Puerta del Perdón , to obtain the corresponding indulgences and the forgiveness of sins in the Jubilee year. The last stop will be in the Plaza de la Catedral, where we begin our visit.
