Things to do Monumental Leon Tour (San Marcos and San Isidoro)

Our guide from León will make you discover the most Monumental Lion, a guided tour that combines two of our most important monuments, such as the Convent of San Marcos de León and the Basilica of San Isidoro.

In the first part, you will learn about its history, the artists who built and decorated them, the famous people who inhabited it, the multiple uses it had after the expulsion of the friars in the 19th century, its curiosities and legends, as well as the treasures that he still keeps this convent. Being today, the National Tourism Parador, its façade is a majestic work of the Spanish Renaissance.

And in a second part, the Basilica of San Isidoro, awaits us after a beautiful walk to the historic center. It was chosen as a place of eternal rest by a good number of members of the Leonese royal family whose bodies rest in the Royal Pantheon where the best set of Romanesque paintings in Spain is preserved, known as the “Sistine Chapel of the Romanesque”.

In addition, you will be able to discover ancient stories and legends linked to this monastery, as well as why the one known as the Cáliz de Doña Urraca is considered by some researchers as the “Holy Grail”.
