About Spain

Among the numerous things you can do and see in Leon, there are some you can’t avoid.

Travel through time visiting the San Marcos’ hospital. Set on the remains of a former military roman camp, this building served as an inn for the pilgrims on their way to Santiago of Compostella. Stroll about the centre and discover the 16th century Guzmanes’ palace. Be amazed by the Casa Botines, built by the world-famous Antonio Gaudi architect during the 20th century.

Wow in the San Isodoro basilica, nicknamed the "spanish sistine chapel". Do not miss the cathedral and its museum either. Nature lovers, head the UNESCO listed "Medulas" natural site and the San Isodoro winter sports resort.

Customer reviews

  • Excellent service |
    "Really pleased by the Service. Took first class tickets with spacious seating and we got to see a newly released movie in Spanish (for me it is not a problem because I understand and speak Spanish), but for my husband it was different but in any case one can look at the footages and try to understand the synopsis. To do again some other time. I wish the same service would be as much developed in Andalusia. Best. "
