“Romanesque gem”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Leóns second church is mainly romanesque, with some very finely detailed porticos and columns, though it all gives a austere and beautiful impression. The late-Gotich choir is an effectful contrast to it all. The admission is free, and should be an integral part of a walk around beautiful León.

“Wondeful building”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

The pantheon and the courtyard are fascinating. Worth the Spanish-only tour. The treasury is great, too.

“Beautifully preserved”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Beautiful old sandstone church, but the highlight for me was the Panteon Real, with its well-preserved frescoes dating back to the 11th century. For me, it was the most magical experience of my visit to Spain.
