Leon is one of those cities that your heart falls in love with and can’t forget. A city that you wished you had discovered years ago and will go straight onto your ‘Top cities in the world’ list.
It is a humble city that boasts only 130,000 and the city used to be a separate Kingdom and holds all the wealth that a kingdom should. The cathedral is one of the greatest I have ever seen. Unknown for it’s beauty and outshines the most famous cathedrals in the world.
With it’s incredible architecture that is a cross between old Spain and antique Paris you will fall in love with the buildings, the shops and the infinite amount of places to stop for memorable coffee.
You will see many flocking from Madrid to enjoy the huge array of boutique shops that this small city offers with a train that only takes 2 hours from the centre to the centre.
If you like old cities with culture bursting from its seams, a huge array of shops to empty those pockets and incredible places to eat, then Leon is a city you need to discover.
