  • One of the cathedrals most spectacular that we have seen. The spectacular outside either day or night. The interior does not maintain its spectacular from the outside but not at odds. Recommended.

  • Qualify well the monument as the Cathedral and its museums are more than interesting. The Nice Cathedral inside and out. Museums surprised us by the amount of paintings and images of authors of great prestige. However, I have to highlight the treatment of dry and little partner staff attending us. It did not seem that they enjoy and that they cease to enjoy that jewel who guard. Being unique visitors who were in their last hour of visit and despite being completely within the timetable announced at the box office, they insisted on several occasions during our journey in which we give us haste and finally we were invited to leave 5 minutes before closing while visiting the last room is complete. It is not a good way to promote the cultural heritage of a city.

  • What to say, that inside is overshadowed by the architectural figures from abroad. I prefer a beautiful exterior photos in this case.

  • 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
