Castilla y León and León in Spain?
I'm doing a report for my spanish class and was assigned the province León, but as I keep looking for geographical information all I see is Castilla y Leon! I'm very confused because the map my teacher gave us has León next to Asturias and Galicia, and there is no Castilla y León province.
Did León merge with Castilla?

Castilla y Leon is one of the seventeen autonomous communities of Spain. Each community is divided into provinces.
Leon is a province of Castilla y Leon.

León is a city, (and a province) and Castilla y León is the Región Autónoma. And, yeah...the Merger happened long ago, the Región used to be known as Castilla la Nueva until about 15 years ago...I´m not sure what the actual date was.
I´ll bet you can find it in your research though.
If your assignment is on the PROVINCE, then it´s León. If it is on the Autonomous region (roughly comparable to a US State, or a Canadian Province) then you are looking for Castilla-León, or Castilla y León.
