Low Cost Car Hire Leon Airport

Leon, set in the north west of Spain, is the capital of the province of Leon in the community of Castile and Leon.  With an estimated population of just under 350,000 it’s the largest municipality in the province.  With a mountainous backdrop, Leon itself is built on the plain and isn’t far from the boundary of Galicia.  With a long and colourful military history, Leon has played host to its fair share of disputes.

Although very much non-touristy, there are several attractions within the city worthy of a visit in your low cost hire car, as well as a good range of short and longer drive options in the surrounding area.  The Cathedral of Leon, an imposing building of gothic styling and blonde stone, which is set in the Plaza Regla is a 12th century building which holds court over the square.  The Hostal de San Marcos is truly a jewel in the city’s crown and worthy of a visit as indeed are the Gardens of Plaza de San Marcos.  Other places worthy of taking the time to see are the Rayonnant Gothic Cathedral and the Basilica of San Isidoro with its tombs and paintings.  For art lovers, MUSAC isn’t to be missed as it plays host to a great selection of modern art and the Casa de Botines which was designed by Gaudi.

Outside of Leon itself, why not take the short 48km trip in your low cost hire car and enjoy the various sights of Astorga which is the second largest town in the province and is well known for its architecture and archeological excavation sites as well as the regional culinary delights served up in its restaurants.  Slightly further afield, but well worth a visit are Villafranca del Bierzo, which plays host to a popular and well known Trade and Folklore Fair during mid-august.  Outside of this time, the village, although sparcely populated has more than its fair share of interesting architecture.

Leon International Airport is only 6 miles outside Leon in Spain.  Previously a military airport, it was only properly opened up to commercial traffic in the mid 1990’s and having seen rapid growth in its passenger handling since the year 2000, it has ambitious plans for its future.  A small airport, low cost car hire is available from most of the major players, but its pretty much essential to select and book your hire car before arriving in order to avoid disappointment.
