About the tour
Guided visit to the Cathedral of Santa María, known as the Pulchra Leonina. A Gothic Temple that began to be built in the thirteenth century, following the Gothic style that came from France brought by the pilgrims of Camino del Santiago, a World Heritage Site. Raised above other previous temples, the tradition says that it was Ordoño II, one of the first kings of León, who donated his palace for it, which was situated on the ancient hot springs of the Roman camp.
We will start inside to observe the 1,800 m² of large colored windows that make it the most spacious and beautiful complex in all of Europe. We will sit on a stone wall and benches to contemplate the choir, the organs, the Altar, the chapels and the tomb of the Leonean King Ordoño II. We will continue abroad, paying special attention to his sculptures, facades and towers.
In this free walking tour, the entrance to the monument is not included, the rates are: 6€ individual entrance (for children under 12 years and people with disabilities the entrance will be free). Whenever possible, I will get groups entrance to apply a discount, and in that case it would be 5€. This fee will be paid to the guide directly on the day of the visit to avoid queues, and he is responsible for making the necessary procedures to purchase the tickets.
