León’s Cathedral was not raised only to be contemplated. Its origin and meaning is, above all, to have been conceived as a work for divine worship. This Pulchra Leonina (beautiful of León) was designed and built at Medieval times when Cathedrals were the epicenter of religious, social and political life. Everything in this Cathedral, its orientation, the floor’s shape, its height, the reliefs of the stones, the stained glass windows, its history and legend… all in this marvel of Gothic art allows to admire the human work and to recognize all divine inside it.
Dear reader, the magazine in your hands offers a different view of León’s Cathedral, a temple which we want to tell you with a look lent from León’s people, casual visitors, architects, bishops, kings, pilgrims on route to Compostela, canons, popes, saints and faithful who rest here… people who, over time, have dreamed, loved and lived León’s Cathedral.
