One of the most beautiful and impressive Gothic churches in Spain, the Catedral de Leon was built in the 13th century in Leon, north west Spain.
It has some of the best preserved stained glass windows anywhere in Europe, and is also known for being home to the remains of the city's patron saint, San Froilan. Also worth seeing is a collection of about 1,500 pieces of sacred art, including about 50 sculptures of the Virgin Mary.
Remains of Roman baths can also be seen in the crypt.
The cathedral is situated along the route of the Way of St. James, a Medieval pilgrimage route.Places nearby:
