¡Viva León! - La cueva de Valporquero (The cave of Valporquero)
Friday's excursion took us outside of the city and into the mountains, literally into the mountains as we explored the beautiful (and chilly!) cave of Valporquero. About 40 minutes outside of León by bus, students were able to truly try something new. Far away from the cathedral that many use to guide them home, many students were astounded to see the snow-covered mountains in the distance as we felt the sun upon us. Before entering the cave, our bus driver brought us to a nearby mirador for a picture-perfect view of the surrounding valleys.
