Plaza San Martin, Leon

Neighborhood
Mingle with the locals at Plaza San Martin. A small, but vibrant square in the center of town where you will find top-notch tapas. Brimming with small bars and restaurants, it offers a great selection of local cuisine. Order a drink, and a tapa will accompany it. Some places provide you with a menu to choose from, while others will present you with their own house specialty. Portions are often large, so it is easy to fill up quickly. Move from place to place to sample a variety, and make a whole meal out of it. This is such a tradition in Spain that they even have a verb for it--“tapear”--the act of dining on tapas, particularly by going from bar to bar. Put Plaza San Martin into our Leon itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Leon.

  • This is just like thousands of other plazas throughout Spain. It's nice to walk through while browsing for a restaurant to eat at, but otherwise there is nothing special about it.  more »
  • This plaza is situated in the centre of the old town and has many restaurants and bars. It is a pleasant place to seat outside and enjoy a meal on a warm day.  more »
  • Plaza San Martin is close to the Cathedral; when you arrive Leon, grab a map and explore around. Restaurants, pubs and cafes can be found in Plaza San Martin with a happy and relax ambiance.  more »
