  • Well worth stopping to visit this House Museum by its history with respect to the city of Leon.la is guided, by the way very good guide. When you go you'll surprise by what you are going to see two different worlds within the same walls. Essential although it is one of the lesser-known museums.

  • It seems a cinema decor, I don't like the lighting. Interesting and quick visit. Good area to see more stuff and opposite the best cathedrals!

  • Is is of the home that an illustrated of principles of the 19th prepared-until in its more trivial details-for your future spouse, but this you gave pumpkins and the House is closed to cal and sing, except a small area inhabited by the nephew and heir of the owner. This has led to an exceptional conservation. Stroll she is transported to the 19th century (the visit is guided). Apart from that, this newest member of the family created the Sierra Pambley Foundation, which left his entire fortune in inheritance. Except during the dark period of the Franco dictatorship, this Foundation is dedicated to educate girls and provide professional training to young men. It was, moreover, an education at the forefront of the era, as the patrons of the Foundation were very close to the Institución Libre de Enseñanza. In transition were returned property confiscated by the Franco regime and have resumed their activities (classes, for example, Spanish immigrants). All this tells an interesting exhibition on the first floor. The visit guided are 5 euros but is worth the penalty. And it supports a good cause.

  • 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.
