  • Attached to the Episcopal Palace is the Cathedral and its Museum. On the outside has some benches so you can quietly sit and quietly observe the facade. Visit obliged.

  • Very different from the Cathedral that I saw on the outside is beautiful, although it is striking the various shades of stone! To be reconstructed after a strong earthquake... Inside it is awesome! The ceilings are plaster very weary and very clear!

  • It is amazing the grandeur of this monument in a small town. Admission costs $ 5 and includes audio guide (very good). The Cathedral combines different styles (Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque) architectural And this by the 3 centuries that lasted construction. To highlight the altarpiece of the high altar and the Museum of sacred art, where we saw all kinds of Episcopal vestments, books, paintings... It is very well preserved and the play of colours of the main façade is curious.

  • Wonderdul experience. Thanks Dr. Rosa!
  • A very unique Catholic Spanish Church that still has its choir stall taking up the center of the Church. You'll enjoy the artwork and sculpture, and the stained-glass. It's well worth visiting. If you're a Camino pilgrim, you'll enjoy this point of rest.
  • very informative self guided tour
  • Maybe the most beautiful or unique cathedral in Leon.
  • Stunning
