What a day! We had the day to explore Leon, it was amazing. So much to do.
We visited the Cathedral. So amazing there are so many windows that the walls could collapse. They have restored and reinforced it, I believe they are still working on it.
San Isidoro is a convent and has some amazing artifacts and a little "Sistine Chapel" in it.
Then we headed over to San Marcos. San Marcos was a monastery and is now a beautiful hotel. Lots of history here!
A little lunch, a little fun with the pilgrim and a shell along the way!
Today was awesome. Ended it with Mass at the Cathedral and a blessing for pilgrims. A perfect day and a great way to start our pilgrimage tomorrow.
May God bless us on the Camino and I will carry each of you with me in my prayers. Buen Camino! (If you have any special prayer requests please email me)
Your fellow pilgrim, Mary Maddox
