Amazing Cathedral with stained glass everywhere. Liked the audio guide type of tour which allows a self paced tour, and allows you to stop along the way just to gaze and admire the architecture. This is a must see in Leon.

I was amazed by the beautiful stained glass windows, 80% of which have recently been cleaned. They were stunning. Well worth a visit.

You could sit in this cathedral for quite a while just admiring the stained glass windows. The audio guide is quite good at describing the history of the old cathedral including its most recent renovations. The museum next door can be missed.
