    A VERY helpful page with lots of good tips. I passed through León a couple of times (several decades ago) without stopping. I now know that was unfortunate.

    Most helpful tips, it will be wonderful to see a Gaudi building en-route to Santiago next winter.

    Your pictures and paintings are beautiful as usual. I wish I had had more time in Leon to explore, it's such a beautiful city! Thanks for a lovely page.

    I didn't know about Astorga- that Gaudi building looks great! And the Barrio Humedo picture is awesome and the area sounds great (you know I love tapas!). Also loved the new watercolors, especially the one that you braved the cold weather to do!!
