The city of León s the capital of León province in the autonomous community of Castile and León, in northwest Spain. León is famous for its gothic León Cathedral and many other monumental buildings, such as the Real Colegiata de San Isidoro (which holds the Royal Pantheon, a mausoleum in which medieval Kingdom of León’s royal family were buried, and also has one of the world’s best collections of Romanesque paintings); Casa de Botines (an early work of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, nowadays occupied by a bank); San Marcos (originally the Military Order of Santiago’s home, built in the 16th century); or the new MUSAC, the Castile and León Museum of Contemporary Art. León is also known for its “fiestas”, like Easter. Leonese processions are declared to be of International Interest and, on those days, many people from all over the world visit León to see and participate in its traditions.
