We found out of the chocolate museum via the hotel. It was a easy ten minute walk and we enjoyed the visit. Interesting to see how chocolate actually should be made.

If you go to Astorga you have to visit the museum of the chocolate. One of the most famous attractions in the city. Check the dates before you go as they are closed on Mondays.
