The area is called "Barrio Humedo" and just do as the locals: walk all around and pop in from one bar to another, ask for a vino tinto o blanco (red or white wine) or corto de cerveza (a glass of beer) and they will...More

That is not enough to make it 'Great'. Yes, the many restaurants are a good reason to visit it. What it is not is a 'Drop-Dead Beautiful' plaza. You do not go there to be overwhelmed with the beauty of the place. It is a...More

Plaza San Martin is a very attractive square with several brightly coloured buildings. It is also a lively plaza with a good selection for cafes, restaurants and bars. It's a really good place to come for a few beers and tapas.

While walking around looking for a place to drink something, we passed this plaza and everything was closed. It was around 1 o'clock and for us, Belgians, it was rather strange. Some hours later we came by again and everything was open and it looked...More

Don't go out of your way to visit....It's a typical Spanish square which you can find in most towns and villages.....with a number of bars and restaurants.....It is not special.....There are a number like it in Leon. If you are nearby fine then visit.
