Buses to Leon

Visiting the historic northern Spanish city of Leon is simple, thanks to a wide range of bus connections. Buses run to the city from major cities like Madrid, Santiago de Compostela, Lugo, A Coruna, Valladolid, and the port city of Santander. Passengers will be transported directly to the center of the city, with conveniently located bus stops that make transferring to accommodation simple.

Which is the main bus station in Leon?

Most bus connections will terminate at the Estación De Autobuses De León. A clean, modern facility with a few stores and eating spots on-site, the Estación De Autobuses is located next to Leon's main railway station, which could be handy for onward travel, around half a mile from the city center.

Which bus companies offer buses to Leon?

The vast majority of buses to Leon will be provided by Alsa, Spain's national coach operator. Alsa offers comfortable buses with air conditioning, and onboard WiFi, as well as access to entertainment apps during journeys. It connects Leon to almost all major northern Spanish cities.

Why travel by bus to Leon?

There are plenty of excellent reasons to choose bus travel when visiting Leon. For starters, the local airport is extremely small and offers very few connections, with no flights to Madrid meaning those arriving from the USA may need to take buses. Alsa's bus fleet is extremely comfortable and efficient, offering a service that compares well with Renfe trains. The price of bus travel to Leon will almost always be lower than comparable rail journeys. Buses leave every hour from Madrid, with a journey time of three hours 30 minutes. Add in the city-center bus station, and coach travel is the ideal way to visit.

Before you travel to Leon by bus - good to know!

Leon has been a major seat of learning and political power for over 2,000 years. It was a major Roman city and early Christian center, as well as a key player in the "Reconquista" of Spain from Moorish rulers. Nowadays, it's a beautiful place, with plenty of lively tapas bars (especially in the Barrio Humedo) and attractions, from the ancient Basilica of San Isidoro to the cutting-edge Museum of Contemporary Art. The core of the city isn't very large, so walking is a great way to get around. Pick up a tourist map upon arrival to plot routes and things to see.
