    Has it All! This place is great for getting things at a reasonable price- especially great for students living here because it has all your needs under one roof- like a mall!

    What to buy: Has foreign food which is great if you're homesick

    Chorizos

    Leon is famous for its carnic pork products such as chorizo, salchichon, morcillas... You can try that at any local restaurant or buy them to take away in any butcher or even at local souvenir shops. The one of the photo is at Calle Ancha in a corner at the middle of the street.

    Mantecadas (Astorga)

    A shop window

    These typical biscuits from Astorga can be found also in other villages of Leon.
    In each box come about 12 of them, costing around 3-4 euros. They come in plastic bags, so are easy to keep.
