With some great day trip options in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much harder to experience all that Leon, 19 miles away, has to offer. Leon Cathedral, Convento de San Marcos and San Isidro Basilica alone justify the drive. Don’t skip Astorga either! Just 20 miles away, Astorga Cathedral, City Hall and Museo del Chocolate are non-negotiable stops here.
