Yes it's a pity that photos are not allowed in the Pantheon.

BTW Gaudi has another famous building in the province of León, the Episcoapl Palace of Astorga.

Some beautiful buildings in the Calle Ancha, the main street in the old quartier which was one of the two main streets of the Roman city. All the civil buildings that now occupy the area are from the period XIXth century until the first decades of the XXth.

This pharmacy dates back to 1827 and I think is the oldest in León. Still preserves the old utensils, jars, boxes, nicely decorated

Palacio de Doña Berenguela from the XIIth Century. These are the rests of the palace of the king Alfonso VII who was coronated as an emperor. Today the ruins are in the middle of a school courtyard and many generations of Leones people have played there during the breaks in school

Puente Castro, this bridge that goes over the Torio river link the city with what it was in Medieval times the most important jewish quartier of the city. It was recently restored. Next to it there´s an area very nice for making sports and also very good for running.

Under one of the arcs we see that this year is being specially dry. Usually in autumn, with the typical rain, or in spring, with the melt of the snow, the river brings lots of water but this year it seems it won´t

Iglesia de San Juan y San Pedro de Renueva. The XVIIITh Century facade was brought to León from the monastery of Gradefes, a nearby village, to León in order to be preserved. Probably it should better be preserved in its original location... but anyway here it is

Palacio de Don Gutierre, from the XVIIth Century. Its degradation was notorious until a decade ago, when it was restored and converted in the cultural center of the old town
