Excursions and Activities
Most probably, there is no other region in Spain with such a large variety of landscapes and so many possibilities to spend the leisure time like in León.
Historical cities like León, Astorga, Sahagún or Villafranca del Vierzo, pre-Roman and Roman monuments… villages lost in time in Maragateria, Bierzo or Cabrera, and nature in its pure state: yellow prairies with holm oak forests, silent valleys, mountains covered with snow.
Besides, the mythical St James Way passes passes along this town. Here, you can meet pilgrims coming from all over the World.
Unbeatable place to go trekking, on bicycle routes or car excursions, or just nature watching.
You can try the excellent authochtonous food and wine from this land, since its gastronomy is a fundamental component of the cultural offer in León.
