Museo Panteon San Isidoro de Leon, Leon

4.7
Museo Panteon San Isidoro de Leon dates back a millenium, although it has been rebuilt since then. Within the church is a pantheon serving as the burial place to some dozens of members of Spanish royalty from centuries past. Be sure to look up at the ceiling frescos in this royal tomb. Relics from Saint John the Baptist and Saint Pelayo are on display, as well as the remains of San Isidoro. The museum is sure to interest history buffs, with medieval ivories, fabrics, and codices, as well as a Visigothic Bible. Look up at the facade to see a statue of Saint James the Moor Slayer mounted on horseback.

  • To my most beloved place of Leon. The Pantheon is a unique jewel of Romanesque paintings. I was eager not to repeat.

  • Everything he had read and documented it was little, given that the visit is impressive, with a guide magnificent that it recounts with enthusiasm and knowledge throughout the visit. You can not miss it.

  • The Basilica of San Isidoro, main Romanesque monument located in Leon. At his side is the Museum with their Royal Pantheon, there are many treasures worthy of being as the chalice of Doña Urraca, the library... Visit constantly surprises you. The Guide Antonio explains in detail, it is a great professional. Worth seeing. I loved it.

  • The English tour was great! Fun and interesting, takes about an hour, big thanks to our guide. Highly recommend it to everyone.
  • An absolute must and thoroughly recommended. Simply stunning visit. Our tour was given in Spanish but I overheard that there are also tours given in English. I would imagine there are fewer of such tours available so worth enquiring beforehand for any English-speaking visitors. Well worth the five euros for a detailed tour lasting just under an hour. That said, I have to agree with other commentators on here that there isn't a lot of time given so as to get a closer look at the frescoes and other artefacts - which definitely merit closer inspection - following the explanations given by the guide. For that reason alone, I've given a four-star as opposed to five-star rating.
  • Library is great.
  • Fantastic
  • Must visit the cript
