The Art of Leather

Leon is known as the "world capital of shoes" for its historic and active leather tanning and manufacturing industry. The Ruta PiCaSo tours allow you to see how the process of turning cowhides (and some exotic skins) into leather and then being made into shoes, handbags, belts and other products is achieved. The guided tours will take you behind the scenes into the fascinating techniques of tanning and leatherworking. The talented workers have centuries of experience among them; you'll be amazed at the craft and artistry that goes into what you wear and carry. Tours should be scheduled at least three days in advance. Considering that you'll be doing a fair amount of walking, you might want to, um, wear comfortable shoes. Or, buy some.
