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.
