    I was there a long time ago. As I remember the cathedral is quite impressive, and there is also a Gaudi building there. I think they have some special kind of cocido up there, too, which I would definitely try (a bit heavy on a hot summer day, but what can you do?)

    Personally I would rent a car and explore the area. I heard that Astorga and Villafranco del Bierzo are very interesting, and probably a bit cooler because in the mountains, but I haven't had a chance to visit yet. You could also walk a section of the Camino de Santiago in there somewhere.

    Enjoy!

    Spectacular cathedral! There must be castles! I would have to look that up.

    I guess it depends on your definition of "fun". Mine is touring cathedrals, castles, museums, and taking photos of those and other things that strike me as beautiful. I don't know any shops for you.

    But here are some links to pique your curiosity:
