City Story: Leon

Leon offers a unique blend of medieval and modern architecture. The impressive Santa Maria de Leon Cathedral, designed in the Gothic style with unique stained glass windows houses a museum of sacred art, stands in stark contrast to the modernity of the Museum of Contemporary Art. This juxtaposition is also apparent in Leon’s unique biodiversity. It is home to forests as well as mountain ranges with hidden caves of stalagmites, stalactites and lakes.

Famous personalities:

Moses of Leon (1240-1305)
