Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Never seen a "GT Legao", but the 520 is a well respected touring bike with solid construction and decent parts. All things being equal, you should pick the bike that suits your type of riding best. The answer, like many of these questions, is that it depends.
