  • As I discuss in the title part that you can see without paying the entry for us was the most attractive, as it is where the work that they made this family in defense of the free educational institution. The guided view teaches us how they were these stately homes and the importance that this family had in relation to hygiene.

  • The palace presents an incredible collection of pieces. It accounts for a totally functional XIX century burgess palace, and also has material enough to understand life in the country at the time 
  • Worth going, thanks to a very interesting guided tour. The House is very beautiful, preserved all them details, and the history there that know it for rating it.

  • It is opposite the Cathedral of León, and offers the possibility to visit the exhibition on the ground floor (free), where you can see interesting details related to the philanthropic task Francisco Sierra Pambley undertaken in the field of education in the first place. There are documents, school material for the time, blackboards, desks,... many things to see and learn that. Then there is the visit to the House, which is guided, and it costs 3 euros (is there a discount for students, teachers, retirees,...). And of course it's worth. The girl who accompanied us and was showing the various rooms is very nice and pleasant, and was telling us in a very interesting way the history of this bourgeois House, with details that allowed us to get a clear idea of how he lived in Leon, in a liberal family and upper-class, in the early years of the twentieth century. The Sierra Pambley were curious and very progressive people for the time they had to live, interested in travel and learn about advances in food, health, education... Among things that draw attention is that in the House which was installed surely outside the first toilet with cistern in the city of León, (very promptly told us guide to many children and young people understand, to see that room bathroom, the meaning of the phrase that says "pull the chain", because now it is usually a button to release the water to the water). The romantic story that relates to who built and decorated the House did so with the desire to live in it with the woman that it was love, her niece, who seems to be that rejected him and married another is also very peculiar. The jilted remained lifelong bachelor, perhaps permanently in love with the young woman, who knows. It should be noted the task of guidance accompanying the visit, which is seen to enjoy their work and also makes it quite frankly very well.

  • The building is worth seeing, especially the patio.
