Plaza San Martin, Leon

4.6
#3 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Castile and Leon
Mingle with the locals at Plaza San Martin. A small, but vibrant square in the center of town where you will find top-notch tapas. Brimming with small bars and restaurants, it offers a great selection of local cuisine. Order a drink, and a tapa will accompany it. Some places provide you with a menu to choose from, while others will present you with their own house specialty. Portions are often large, so it is easy to fill up quickly. Move from place to place to sample a variety, and make a whole meal out of it. This is such a tradition in Spain that they even have a verb for it--“tapear”--the act of dining on tapas, particularly by going from bar to bar.
