The building is used as the disputación for the province of Leon, and is thus still in use. Still, one can enter the courtyard, and obviously also admire the exterior as individual. For the rest of the building, one needs to take a guided tour.

This place is well worth a visit, but you have to pay to go in and set a time for your visit. It can only be done via a free guide who will explain the history of the place.
