León Travel Guide: 196 reviews and 493 photos


the settlement of leon began as a camp for rome's seventh legion. during the middle ages leon played a critical role in the christian reconquest of spain. today leon is a major modern city and it's old quarter is quite small. the walls around the old quarter date back to roman times. the old quarter is certainly worth a look on a visit to the northeast section of castilla y leon.
