We entered Leon early so that we could have a full day exploring all the sights.
This is a place of Godly things. The Cathedral is a stunning 13th century one with more glass than stone. Another church, San Isidoro, is a 12th century Romanesque marvel. Our troubadour, Gildas from France, joined us in both places with his violin- playing Bach. It was so lovely and made the churches seem even more magical. Also attached to San Isodoro is a small chapel with a remarkable collection of unrestored but perfectly preserved 12th century frescoes.
And then there is the food. At La Cocina we dined on seafood stuffed red peppers, pork medallions in a blue cheese sauce, fantastic wine and homemade desserts that made Gord moan. So good in fact that we returned for a second meal in the evening. Probably the only day on the Camino that we ate more than we burned.
