Convent of San Marcos

It is one of the most important monuments of the Spanish Renaissance, currently converted into an impressive national parador.

This building was built in the 12th century as a lodging place for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago, as well as for the most disadvantaged people.
Rebuilt in the 16th century, it also served as a prison and cavalry barracks.
Its impressive Plateresque-style façade stands out, in which Juan de Juni and Pedro Larrea took part.
San Marcos is home to the Museo de León, with pieces of great historical-artistic value, including the Christ of Carrizo, a spiritual figure from the 11th century, as well as prehistoric, Roman and medieval art objects.
