Leon is a delightful small colonial town with many churches and an huge cathedral on the central square. The church of San Francisco is now a museum and the cloisters converted in 2000; reasonably comfy large rooms, corridors wide and airy stuffed full of artefacts from religious to sewing-machines etc., very much in the Spanish parador style which I like, although it can fell heavy. A small swimming pool. Gardens well kept and peaceful. Staff pleasant but English not spoken at all which was at times unsettling. Restaurant excellent we found, good breakfast on the terrace with local "delicacies"; our one evening meal was first-class although much off the menu as we were there at the Feast of the Immaculate Conception when the town was in feria mode, everything closed, noisy processions, fireworks, all great fun. Situation two blocks from the main square but everything in Leon is within very easy walking distance
