Episcopal Palace, Astorga
(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The exteriors alone are worth the visit at Episcopal Palace, a Gothic palace filled with religious and historical artwork as well as an Episcopal museum. The architecture of the building itself is breathtaking, with colorful stained-glass windows, and the sculptures in the gardens are a highlight, too. Inside, a few of the artists featured include Francisco Herrera el Viejo, Francisco Pacheco, Zurbarán, and Murillo. Some of the documents in the library date back to the 14th century.

  • It looks like a storybook Castle! He doesn't surprise me. The penalty is that this time was in the works and scaffolding afeaban photos. However, the next time you restart will already be the image cleared :-)

  • Visit all floors to have an idea of luminosity that comes from those slim windows! Also the garden one can see part of the city wall, nice view!

  • This episcopal palace (which looks like a castle) was started by architect Antoni Gaudi. It's fun to look through. There's a beautiful chapel inside and a lot to look at. You can purchase a combination ticket for this site and the museum next door to the Church.
  • Unique bishop's house designed by Gaudi. Entrance ticket combine the cathedral.
  • Another breathtaking masterwork by genius Gaudí. The views of the Roman wall and the cathedral for perfectly with the architecture of the Palace, now a museum dedicated to the Camino de Santiago. It's an odd feeling to see one of Gaudí's best works displayed in such a small city, but that just adds to the charm.
  • Unique Gaudi's design. Enjoy the way the stones are carved into the air. Amazing curves in a Modernist interpretation of the Gothic style.
  • Magnificent palace, the architecture is just marvelous, great shapes. Definitely something to watch.
