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.

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.
