Leon is the perfect city from which to explore the north-western region of Spain. It has a vast selection of tapas restaurants and bars, and there’s a nice culture of serving tapas with drinks as a sort of pre-dinner treat. The city is home to many religious structures such as Leon Cathedral, the Basilica San Isidoro and Royal Pantheon, which plays host to many pilgrims. Many people utilise car hire in Leon to explore the outlying areas, and by doing so you’ll not only enjoy the delights of this important provincial capital, you’ll also discover places like the Caverns of Valporquero.
