After the León cathedral, I went to the San Isidoro church. On the way to the San Isidoro church, I took some photos.
The Basilica of San Isidoro León is located on the site of an ancient Roman temple. Its Christian roots can be traced back to the early 10th century when a monastery for Saint John the Baptist was erected on the grounds. The basilica was dedicated to Saint Isidore of Seville in the 1063.
St. Isidore of Seville (560 – 636) was archbishop of Seville, and the most celebrated academic and theologian of Visigothic Spain in the period preceding the Arab invasions.
St. Isidore’s relics were brought to Leon where they could be interred on Christian soil.
The ark containing the remains of San Isidoro is at the high altar of the church.
Left the San Isidoro church and headed to the next door of Royal Pantheon Museum.
