Hi !!

I am off tomorrow to Madrid ... looking forward to my second Camino but unfortunately this time i will start from Leon due to restricted vacation leave.

I had a look at the weather forecast and it seems it will rain starting mid week. Is there somewhere where i can get a poncho from when in Leon or in Madrid??

Buen Camino everyone :D

One of the largest department store chains in Spain is El Cortes Ingles - they have branches in Madrid and Leon.
Look out especially for the ALTUS rain poncho.

Many, various, and continuing.
There´s a hunting and fishing store in the old section of Leon that carries Altus products; it is family run and I find it much more customer-oriented than the soulless corporate attitude you get at El Corte Ingles. It´s called Armeria Castro, it´s at No. 7 Calle Rua. Make a right off Calle Ancha right at the intersection by the big Palacio de Guzmanes/Gaudi building. The store is on the left, you gotta keep a sharp eye out to see it. (it´s very near to the Benedictine pilgrim hostel, matter O fact.)

Enjoy Leon!

I bought my altus jacket there, nice people.

There was a nice little restaurant just left of it that was nice as well.
