The Basilica itself wasn't that impressive but worth it if you're in the area. The Panteon Real has really unique history and I would absolutely recommend going if you are in León - it is basically the royal burial place for that region and the...More

This is a must for anyone visiting Leon - the ceilings in the are Pantheon are so well preserved - you will not see anything like it elsewhere.

very nice basilica built in roman/early gothic style, which must be seen once you are in Leon. It is very central in the city and such as a great competitor to the Leon's cathedral.

The basilica as others have said is beautiful. I attended a mass there which was focused on the pilgrims of the Camino. But the Pantheon was breathtaking in its representations of the life of Christ and the paintings are so well preserved due to the...More
