The Cloister of Léon Cathedral is accessed from the outside, from the Calle Guzmán el Bueno, and, just like the interior, it was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. Built in the 14C, it is also very big.
Statues in the Cloister are apparently taken from the West Door of the cathedral and were removed during ‘restoration’.
There are the remains of wall paintings in the Cloister and these were apparently done by Nicolás Francés from 1459 onwards. He was also responsible for the original great altarpiece, some of which remains in today’s altarpiece.
Between the Cloister and the church is the Chapel of St Theresa (no.9 on the plan above), but I can’t find any further information on the internet – odd. And a remarkable door into the Cathedral.
There is also a museum in the buildings around the Cloister with many interesting items, but photography is not allowed. A pity, and I don’t really understand why not. Do visit!
