León, is the fascinating capital of the Old Kingdom of León,
Spain. Known as an autonomous community divided between Castile and León.
Its inhabitants are considered Castilian and Leon respectively.
The city of León, is small, with a rich cultural heritage. You can
see how the whole of Europe combines in one place.
Its architecture has a bit of French and Roman, making every corner of the
city unmatched, with narrow alleys that serve as a bridge to plazas crammed
small and eye-catching bars. The city of León not only presents an
architectural spectacle but also shows a gastronomic offer, the tapas being
the banner of the city.
And if that's the case, the humid neighborhood is one of the best known resorts
in the area. With a medieval impression and rather narrow streets, they welcome
a hundred people. It is the place where skewers are called tapas and the beer
is usually drunk in shorts (small cups) and if you find yourself here, do
not miss visiting the Plaza Mayor, center of many events and meetings (including
bullfights) and Plaza de Santa Maria del Camino or Plaza del Grano, which
receives this name due to its paved pavement , you to remote times where you
would see old floats go by.
Nor can you overlook the Cathedral of León, which, when you pass through
its huge doors you feel that to see gold shine, because that is the feeling
that gives the view of the cathedral internally, full of precious murals that
there are no words that can describe it. It's simply Majestic. This cathedral
is the most famous in the city, with its gothic and imposing style, reminds
us of something to the Notre Dame Cathedral in France.
On the other hand, you can not miss the Basilica of San Isidoro, which, in
fact, is the pantheon of kings, where the remains more than a score of kings
rest there. It's a very nice panorama to admire.
If you still have time, visit the House of Boots, a work created by Gaudí
and just in front of the building is (seated in a bench) a sculpture of him,
so take advantage of taking photos with the same gaudí. The booty House
originally this building had been created to use them as housing or warehouse,
but in the end it was used as offices.
And yet, I encourage you to visit this place, where people are open and hospitable,
with excellent gastronomy, an architecture without equal and corners even
