The privileged location of the city of Leon as a crossing point for historically important routes such as the Way of Saint James and the Ruta de la Plata (Silver Route), and as a communications hub between Asturias, Galicia and the rest of Spain, makes this two-thousand-year-old city a very attractive destination for any visitor.
The history of Leon goes back to the Roman Legio VI. It later became the capital city of the Kingdom of Leon, a symbol of which is the Claustro de San Isidoro, an iconic building where the first democratic royal assemblies were held in 1188 with Alfonso IX. This event was celebrated by UNESCO when it gave the city the title of “Leon, Cradle of the Parliamentary System”.
Leon possesses a rich and varied cuisine, and a wide range of activities that make the city an ideal place to visit and experience.
For sports and leisure lovers there are 2 golf courses, sports clubs, a riverside trail and open-air athletics tracks, a large number of swimming pools attached to sports centres, the Palacio, stadium and sports pavilions, traditional areas for shopping and newer shopping centres.
