Plaza San Martin, Leon

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Square full of bars with delicious tapas and good treatment (except the bicha, I there would not go). The truth is that for people who visit Leon is an obligatory stop for tapas. When weather is nice you can see, and they are always filled with terraces.

  • Place bound for tapas. With the exception of "The bicha", in all the places where we were, all great.

  • In this square and the streets around are many bars and restaurants where you can take with a beer or wine "tapas" of Leon. All bars have different covers that give you choose with your consumption. Summer is full of terraces, and in Holy week elapse between host of "processions" to it, filling up at that time of a multitude of people.
