Leon Cathedral, Leon Spain

Leon Cathedral, Leon Spain

After yesterday’s festival the streets of Leon were quiet today, I am sure there is much more going on this evening!  Today we had time to see the Gothic Cathedral, built between the 13th and 14th centuries, it is the  over 1800 square meters of medieval stained glass.

So much has been written about the cathedral, I specifically remember someone writing that I would get a creak in my neck from gazing up at the vaulted ceiling, the beautiful stained class windows, relief carvings and fresco painting. They were right, while some restorations is taking place, and there is still much to do, it is one of those magnificant works of architeture and are that everyone should visit.
