Among the different places to eat in Ledesma we highlight Las Fernandicas, granddaughters of Fernando and daughters of Fernandico. It’s one of the last remaining examples remaining in Spain where traveling salesmen and mule drivers stop. They offer authentic rural and pastoral gastronomy in a family environment. The food is homemade, and we recommend the fried potatoes or tostón frito. For dessert they give you a table full of cheeses, all of which are served with quince.

La Posada del Bleto, in addition to being a hostel, has a good restaurant where we highlight the scrambled eggs with ham or farinato, which is much more typical to the region.

Finally, Restaurante La Nena is where you’ll find food with good reviews and an economical price.
