León Things to Do: 111 reviews and 333 photos

The Catedral de Santa María de León or León Cathedral (also called "The House of Light") is the cathedral of the city of León in northwest Spain. It was built on the site of a Roman bath of the 2nd century which, 800 years later, King Ordoño II converted into a palace.

León Cathedral's great doors, its rose window, the choir (one of the oldest in the country) and the delicacy of some figures, like the venerated Virgen Blanca presiding over the constant traffic of visitors, are among the many impressive features of this cathedral
