Leon Guide

Home to Spain’s ‘Sistine Chapel’, Leon is also a great base for exploring the stunning countryside of the Picos de Europa National Park, the World Heritage listed Roman gold mines at Las Medulas and the winter resort of San Isidiro.

Leon’s two most important attractions are the cathedral and Basilica of San Isidro. The cathedral is a striking Gothic masterpiece and is famous for its two freestanding towers, its giant stained-glass windows and the Romanesque tombs in the transept. It also contains a fascinating museum. Spain’s ‘Sistine Chapel’ is contained within the Basilica of San Isidro’s walls. The frescoes in its underground crypt date from the 12th century and depict scenes from the Old and New Testament, with the original colours of the paint still brightly visible.

To conduct a walking tour of this ancient city, begin in the Plaza Mayor, which has among its baroque buildings the City Hall - from whose balconies nobles used to watch the city below. City Hall is bordered by the neighbourhood of San Martin, whose squares and streets contain gems such as the 10th century church of San Salvador de Palat del Rey and the Palace of Count Luna with its 14th century façade.

The streets of San Martin are home to Leon’s bars and restaurants where specialties like frog’s legs, rice pudding and maragato stew can be washed down with wines from El Bierzo.

Outside Leon there are many important sites, including the Maragatera region with the monastery of Santa Maria and the Roman gold mines of Las Medulas. To the northwest lies the Picos de Europa National Park, where old mountain villages appear between the beech tree forests. In Leon’s central mountains winter sports enthusiasts can also visit the San Isidro skiing resort.

León is served by eleven trains a day leaving from Madrid (duration: 4-5 hours). By road, head northwest from Madrid on the N-VI superhighway toward La Coruña. At Benavente, bear right onto the N-630.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
