He who does not know the town of Astorga, owes himself a visit :). There are many gems to be found in this area, including the the Town Hall Square and the enormous cathedral and, of course, the Episcopal Palace or Gaudí Palace. It seems incredible that anyone would dare to express in a building all our childhood dreams of knights and princesses. I don't know anyone who has not been bowled over when they first saw this place.
Magnificent neoclassical building next to the Palace of Guzman. It was built by Gaudi, in chairs from the mountains of Leon. The highlight of the facade are the 4 towers at the corners, slate capped pinnacles. Above the main entrance there's an impressive sculpture of St. George slaying a dragon. Inside there are stained glass windows on cement base, precious. Opposite the building is an urban sculpture in bronze by Antonio Gaudí sitting on a bench. Today is Cajaespaña headquarters, and it sometimes hosts temporary art exhibitions. The building was declared a historic monument in 1969, it is worth a visit, if only in appearance.
