Astorga : Michelin's recommendations


Already renowned at the time of the Romans, Astorga developed in the Middle Ages thanks to the fairs and activities which entertained pilgrims heading to Santiago de Compostela. Food-enthusiasts will enjoy Astorga's mantecadas, a type of brioche. In the Plaza Mayor, note the famous clock crowning the town hall, where two costumed “maragatos” (a cross between a Goth and a Moor) appear every hour.
