Autumn begins in León with San Froilán. Morcilla (blood sausage), chorizo and perdones (roasted hazelnuts, popularly known as perdones). San Froilán in León is tradition, it is history with the banners and the decorated carriages. Especially recommended to see for its uniqueness.
You can stay at our hotel to move with tranquility to see this event, we will inform you of everything related to San Froilán and what not to pursue.
Magosto in León:
When: late October and early November.
Magosto is the name given to the bonfire prepared to roast chestnuts around which friends or neighbors gather to share them and drink new wine, cider and freshly distilled orujo after the harvest. It is a perfect excuse for a walk among chestnut trees and ending at a bonfire to chat and discuss the anecdotes of the summer.
Very close to our hotel, about 10 km away, there is a wonderful place for hiking among chestnut trees. It is the area around (of course) some Roman gold mines: Las Miédulas de Villaviciosa. In this environment there are centenary chestnut trees, a legacy of the Romans who exploited the gold mines now called Las Miédulas (or Las Medulillas), unknown to many, but very beautiful at this time of the year.
We offer you in our hotel all the information and a place to perform the magosto safely.
Routes along the banks of the rivers of León:
When: end of October and throughout November.
In autumn the riverbanks are especially beautiful. The rivers increase their flow a little due to the first rains, the leaves always cover the trails, the color palette is spectacular. These routes can be done on foot or by mountain bike.
Route of the source of the Órbigo River: From our hotel, always on foot or by mountain bike, you can start a very nice route along the banks of the Órbigo River. Following the traditional Camino Real, you can reach the source of the Órbigo river, where the Omaña and Luna rivers meet. A very special place and even more beautiful in autumn.
