Mundileón offers you the opportunity to meet León from the perspective you are most passionate about. In all our excursions you will be accompanied by one of the guides, graduates and knowledgeable experts of the area, who will illustrate you about the observed and tell you related stories and anecdotes. León's wealth expands from its historic center to the natural sites of the periphery and its unique villages. Go ahead and come to visit us, we assure you that it will be a success.
For those looking to get to know the historic center in depth, we have prepared our route Contrasts of León . In it we can learn the historical character by reviewing the traces of the civilizations that have made this territory theirs, from prehistory to the present. We will start in the Plaza de Santo Domingo, with the house of the Booties of Gaudí and a wonderful Renaissance Palace, that of Los Guzmanes. We will enter the Historic Caste with the Puerta de Principalis and the Modernist City. We will enter the Museum of León, San Isidoro and La Catedral, the two most important religious enclaves. We will continue through the Wet District, the tapas area of León where life comes to a boil after the sun goes down, and we will arrive at the Plaza del Grano.
Astorga is one of the most representative villages in León. Of Roman origin, our route will focus on the footprints left by this civilization. We will walk the path by which those pilgrims who go to the Camino de Santiago travel, passing through the Páramo to the Órbigo River. This natural enclave became a historical zone due to the battles of Don Suero de Quiñones. From this moment, we will enter the historic center of Astorga with the Roman Route .
Nature offers its passionate two of the Castilian-Leon landscapes par excellence. The first is in an underground world that hides endless secrets, as beautiful as those that inhabit the surface. The Valporquero Cave is located at the exit of the Torío River, in a valley that has an entrance from Matallana, coal mines that make up beautiful rock formations. Following Vegacercera, gastronomic reef of our land, we will cross the Roman bridge until we reach Hocer, where the steep walls welcome us. At 1300 meters high is our destination, where we can visit 7 rooms formed by different galleries.
The second destination par excellence is Las Médulas, a World Heritage Site originated by the extraction of gold in Roman times. Currently you can see the fruit of the passage of time on the mountain, a landscape that looks like another planet. The visit will be on foot, to be able to glimpse it in all its splendor, including a walk between vineyards with the Denomination of Origin of Ponferrada.You will visit a key location in the Templar era, where a spectacular castle is located.

The guide was not good. I do not contextualize the visit nor leave of the previous knowledge and level of the participants to realize it. Very mechanical. A bit sparse (not included the Palacio San Marcos for example).
