With a history that theoretically dates back to pre-Roman times, the Leonese municipality has a wide range of monuments. The city has countless tourist attractions where travelers can take a detour to enjoy small pieces of history.

After continuing along Pío Gullón Street, pilgrims can head towards José María Goy with its Chocolate Museum.
