  • Architecturally very recommendable. A comprehensive Museum with unique pieces. The choir of the Cathedral is spectacular.

  • It is must-see if you were to go to Astorga to spend the day. The visit costs 5 euros in normal entry and includes the Cathedral Museum with some important pieces of Romanesque art made by local craftsmen. The truth is that little or nothing has that they do not have other cathedrals like the lion, but this type of construction always seem exciting, moreover the Museum has an interesting collection of paintings and elements. The visit includes audioguide.

  • 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.
  • Maybe the most beautiful or unique cathedral in Leon.
  • The architecture of this building is outstanding. Such a beautiful place, definitely worth visiting.
  • A style quite different from the Gaudi building, we find the beautiful Cathedral of Leonese Baroque style. It highlights the altarpiece, and everything is accompanied by much Romanesque
