Plaza San Martin, Leon

(4.7/5 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.

  • Hub of the vinoteo and the tapas in the barrio húmedo, called formerly "plaza of shops" for having (as its name implies) several small shopping district and trade customers who went to the market or the plaza de abastos celebration days living. Today there is virtually no shop and Yes, lots of bars, taverns, restaurants and every tourist who comes to the city first asked, in addition to the Cathedral, is where the Barrio Húmedo. Any day of the week, there is atmosphere from 8 o'clock until the many, a place which promote social relations beside a good wine and a better lid (this, of course free). A place that you can't miss and if you do, return to meet him, do not hesitate.
