Festivities of León
Probably one of the best things to know Valdevimbre is to explore its side streets, its traditional food market and its rich heritage, historical and natural. In summary, you have to feel its way of life, the typical Spanish way of life, a leisurely pace style that you can find in small villages far away from the big cities.
The capital León is decked in its full splendour during the Easter Week celebrations. The ceremonial Processions of the Pasos, or religious floats, are especially famous the world over. Just about all villages in the province have their local feast, dedicated to the patron saint. Most of these are around Easter, though many towns and villages have their festivals in other times, especially January and November.
The town of Bembibre is noted for its botillo or cured meat festival, every February. All restaurants serve a wide variety of Botillo dishes, and the event is complete with many competition, exhibition, and cultural events.
The León Cathedral International Organ Festival, held annually during September and October is an impressive venue for classical music and dance performances. The León Spanish Music Festival in June features more of international composers.
