Travel Blogs from León
We arrived in Leon yesterday by bus from Burgos. We stayed an extra day to tour the area before starting the Camino tomorrow. This city has offered us an incredible lesson in history. We are currently staying in the original hospital built for the pilgrims on the Camino. Hospital was the word used for the place for pilgrims, meaning hospitality.

The only cars allowed in the old city are residents who need a pass (all bollarded off) so people just enjoy the streets.
