  • We started the visit at one, after the completion of the cult. It is very understandable that the visit to a religious center is conditioned by these circumstances. First we will visit the Museum, with interesting pieces. Passing through the cloister you reach the interior of the Cathedral, where ends the visit, very well signposted and with explanations in audio.

  • We went today at 10.45 and they have told us that there would be no visit to the Cathedral to 13.00 because when there are "cult" at 12.00 already you can not visit from one hour and a quarter before... incredible! good for nothing we are left without seeing her. If you have to "choose", as today we, visit the episcopal Palace of Gaudí: very interesting and friendly people at the entrance.

  • It has been a very interesting visit. It helps the audioguide that you deliver, it explains not only art, but it puts you at the time. The price more than acceptable: €5 adults and free children under 13. It is well-kept and comfortable visit.

  • 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.
  • Stunning
  • We visited the Cathedral and its Museum, being this last impressive. Featuring numerous works, I think that more than 500, some of inestimable value. It is worth paying the €3,5 which is the buy-in. The visit must be done without haste, to enjoy and to appreciate all its contents
