Hotel Reservations in Leon
Step back in time with a stay in the historic city of Leon at a luxury hotel in Spain. Leon is situated about 330 km northwest of Madrid, and the Bernesga River and Torio River border the city to its west and its east. One can not help but notice the grandiose presence of the Romanesque and Gothic style buildings that occupy Leon.
Visit the Hostal San Marcos. It was founded during the 12th century as a monastery which provided refuge to the pilgrims en route to Santiago de Compostela and is now a luxurious hotel. Another impressive building to visit is Casa de Botines. It is presently the site of the savings bank of Leon, but it was originally designed by Antoni Gaudí in 1881 as a Modernist style home for Joan Homs I Botinàs. It is one of very few buildings that Gaudí had ever created outside of the city of Barcelona.
The place to be after 9pm in Leon is the city's Old Town: Barrio Húmedo. Enjoy a glass of wine or un corto (a small beer) at one of the many bars. Unlike most Spanish cities and towns, many of the bars will offer free tapas to accompany the drink. This is also the district to be in for a night out on the town. There are copious amounts of bars to choose from, and many of them stay open until the early morning hours.
