Description

Have you never been to Astorga? Our Astorga Free Walking Tour will take you around this beautiful medieval city and reveal the mark left behind by Gaudí clearly reflected in its historical heritage. The reconquest, pilgrims, Romans, poets and writers come together to create the different sides present in its streets.

In the company of our Spanish speaking guide, our route begins in the city’s old town where one of the main jewels on or destination can be seen high above. We are of course talking about Astorga´s striking Cathedral, considered a must-see for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago. The temple which is dedicated to Santa María displays a great variety of artistic styles from Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque to its final Neoclassicism. In the surrounding areas we will also encounter the Church of Santa María and the Celda de las Emparedadas.

The medieval city of Astorga and its great architectural beauty:

Next, head towards the Roman walls and see the finishing touch on our itinerary: The Episcopal Palace of Astorga. A Medieval castle which boasts a Modernist and imperfect style. This amazing monument is surrounded by magnificent gardens and despite it having initially been intended to be a residence for the Bishop, the building at present houses the “Museo de los Caminos”.

Take a walk along Calle de los Sitios, the main artery of the old town and then through to Plaza Santocildes until you reach Plaza Mayor. The Plaza Mayor, porticoed and quadrangular base is set over part of the ancient Roman forum; the famous city market is celebrated here and the square is also the scene for important events in the cultural life and festivities of Astorga. The Town Hall presides over the square.

There is also a visit to the Roman Museum, the Church of San Bartolomé and the archeological ruins of a Roman house where a beautiful mosaic presides remarkably well-preserved to this day.

To end the tour, we will admire the Jardin de la Sinagoga (the Garden of the Synagogue) from where we will contemplate some of the best views of Monte Teleno and the Montes de León.

Be amazed by a place filled with the best part of Leon´s history and enjoy seeing all the monuments and landscapes the city has to offer when you sign up to our Free Tour Astorga. You will be amazed!
