Introduction:
Leon Tour
On this private tour you will discover Leonīs cathedral and other important monuments of the Old Quarter. Leon became the capital of the kingdom in the Middle Ages, a historic enclave on the Pilgrimīs Road to Santiago de Compostela and a city perfectly suited to its inhabitants. What was the Roman Legio VII Gemina Pia Felix preserves an interesting Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance legacy, the result of its splendor during the Middle Ages. The Plaza Mayor forms the centre of this city, crossed by the river Bernesga. Among this baroque collection of buildings stands the City Hall, popularly known as the "Balcony of the City", since from its galleries the nobles observed the townīs activities taking place.
Pilgrimage Road to Santiago de Compostela

The Pulchra Leonina, the "Sistine Chapel" of Spanish Romanesque architecture. The stained glass in the Cathedral is from the 13th through the 20th century and cover 1,200 square metres of surface area. Under its plan there are Roman hypocausts which made it difficult to set the foundations of the pillars and caused water filtration.
