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.

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.

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.

Great main square in the old town area to grab a bit, sit and chat with locals, or just read and while away the afternoon. Easily accessible from many parts of the city. I felt comfortable walking to and from here at night alone.
