Convent of San Marcos
The 12th century hostel rebuilt in the 16th century, was used as a prison (Francisco de Quevedo was imprisoned here), cavalry barracks, and hospital. Nowadays it is a Parador Nacional (a state-owned hotel).
To be noted is the Plateresque facade; Juan de Juni and Pedro Larrea took part in its construction. The church, of Gothic style, and the cloister are also very interesting.
San Marcos is now home to the Museo de León, keeping remains and works of great historical and artistic value, amongst them is the Cristo de Carrizo, a spiritual figure from the 11th century, and some prehistoric, Roman and medieval works of art.
