Make sure to see it

The cathedral, the most representative of the gothic French style in all of Spain, isn’t the biggest of size, but it’s the biggest when it comes to spirituality.

The luminosity resulting from the magnificent and extensive stain glass windows, gives something special to the building, which has two of the most important stained glass collections in Europe.

You can count the thousands and thousands of artistic details throughout the cathedral. I’m an art student, and was completely impressed.

The most famous legend about the cathedral of León and all of León is about the cathedral’s mole. If you visit the cathedral, make sure to look for the dark figure just above the main entrance.

The cathedral that looks up to the heavens

A sight for sore eyes. Leon is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, but it’s cathedral is the gem of the Northern half of the peninsula. It’s of gothic style and was built in the 13th century. It’s a smaller-scale replica of the cathedral in Reims, France.

Visit it on a sunny day, if possible, looking towards the sky and taking in how its towers, almost becoming needle points, melt into the sun. It’s an astonishing view that I’ve only seen in a few places. It’s said that the most important building were constructed in the gothic style, tall, with slender shapes, as a way to try to reach the heavens, to reach God.
