Barrio humedo (quarter of town where most of the tapas bars are) within barrion humedo, the plaza mayor, with a selection of bars, cafes, pubs and dance clubs. Insider info: The Don Quijote (otherwise known as he bucket bar because they serve "cachis" (small plastic buckets) of spirits and mix quite cheap for the quantity of alcohol you get. Usually the place where we start going out. After two of them, and within any budget, you continue to one of the dancings in the city centre like the SOHO club, or club XL. Lively music for every taste and good atmosphere to get the night really started. Because o new legislation, all the clubs shut at 5am whereby they used to be open until 8-9am. The big discos are: OH!LEÓN (close to the supermarket Carrefour outside the city centre and the newly opened PACHA. It would be pointless though giving you a list of all the pubs as there are so many of them. Also don't bother leaving the house before 11pm as people are still eating at that time (it's Spain afterall).

ok.. there's about a million. Signatura was a favourite of mine for a wee bit of dancing, though not very big, if your into proper clubs head out on the bus that looks like something out of the BRady Bunch to Baroke.. out of town on the way to Austurias.. its pretty impressive but they get a but carried away with the lazer lights and the raving! Back to El Humedo again.. the best tapas can be found at Bar Latino, a green doored place! Head to Chupitos for a menu of shots you could only imagine! La Competencia however, is a must! THe best pizza outside El Cano! Finally, dont leave without going to the Cidra bar, which serves tasty cider as well as spicy garlic potatos as tapas! oh.. and finish they night off at Bocato Guay.. the take away place near the catherdral.. pop into El Torro on your way there for some serious cheeze,stagger home with your bocato and you will be as happy as larry!

For lively bars and wonderful tapas, head to the Barrio Humedo, but for a more relaxing evening with some liqueur coffees try Cafe Bambu, just behind the cathedral. The cathedral itself has to be the most impressive sight in the city and it really dominates the whole centre (also doubles up as a good landmark for when you are lost!)

In Spain, Parties take part of the culture and it mixs with the religion. That's why, in Leon, you can't miss the week of Easter, because during one week, every day you have religious processions and for the night you have big parties in all over town with different theme. There is also the Leon's parties. It is three days where you make parties to celebrate the town : Leon. It occures at the end of June. Moreover, Leon is famous because is one of the important point of the St Jacques de Cpmostelle's walk. THe town have a huge catedral. If you to go to parties, all the bars are concentrated in neighbourhood called the Barrio Humedo, contrary to other town in Spain.Each bar has its music and you go to place to place duting all the night. If you go to Leon, you must taste the specialites of pork butchery. When you are in Spain, you must go to the tapas. You go to bar to bar with your group of friends and you drink and eat specialities of the region talking with your friend. It is real convivial moment. Then,if you like to travel, you must go to Barcelona, to visit various Works of Gaudi. Madrid is famous for is museums. Each region as France has its espaecialities. If you want to make ski o to walk through the montain, you must go to the picos de Europa. I discovered during one year a rich country.
