This is a must visit in Leon. There are very beautiful old fresco and sculptured capitals. There are several caskets of royal families.

This is attached to a place of worship, but you need to go into the museum part to see the real gems. It is via guided tour so ask when you visit to get the right one for you.

A visit with guide is a must. No other option I think, so check the hours. The mural was amazing, it is more than a thousand years old.

The content of the museum is essential to understand the foundations of Spain. Very well preserved and documented pieces of the Romanic and the old Leon and Castille Kingdoms.

The tour cost 10€ for two people and was definitely worth the money. The only bad thing is that you can't take pictures of any of the items, even without using flash. They run Spanish and English language tours, that last an hour and given...More
