Santa Maria de Leon Cathedral Leon
#1 of 122 Sights & Landmarks in Province of Leon
Constructed on the site of former Roman Baths this Gothic masterpiece hints of features present in both Chartres and Rheims Cathedrals.
We had opted for the cathedral and cloister visit which is the cheapest but also allows the view of the various chapels.

Penalba de Santiago Ponferrada
#2 of 122 Sights & Landmarks in Province of Leon
The views are incredible!
Museo Panteon San Isidoro de Leon Leon
#3 of 122 Sights & Landmarks in Province of Leon
The tour includes the chalice which has a fascinating history, the beautiful painted ceilings showing the life of Christ, and supposedly the site of the first Spanish parliament.
Your visit concludes in the cloister, The Museum and Pantheon is definitely one of the top sights of northern Spain.

#6 of 122 Sights & Landmarks in Province of Leon
Note the viewing gallery to inside the mine tunnel is closed during the day between 2-4pm so we missed out on that but you can get views of the Roman mines any time and the views are spectacular, highly recommended!
The views from the platform is amazing but, to get a real feel of the site and be “transformed” in time, take the short self guided tour of the mines.
