  • We visited the Cathedral and its Museum, being this last impressive. Featuring numerous works, I think that more than 500, some of inestimable value. Worth paying the 3,5 € costs the entry and visits should be unhurried.

Centuries of history outstanding masterpieces like the choir stalls from the 16TH century with 97 seats, the cross vaults, the main doorway with biblical scenes, Golden gable joined twin towers etc. Next to the Cathedral is the episcopal Palace interesting with its Museum. Spectacular views which can be seen behind the two buildings in the garden area to make the photo of rigor...

  • 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
