Both hands on the slab
where Jesus was laid out dark
to the depths of death.
with the sun streaming thro’ light
blending the colours.
A prayer in itself
the stained-glass windows’ light
in Leon Cathedral
Fallen to the ground
like a flock of crows the leaves
of the red maple.
Located in northwest Spain along the Camino de Santiago, León Cathedral (Catedral de Santa María de Regla de León) is a French-style Gothic cathedral built in the 13th century over the ruins of ancient Roman baths.
Intricately carved portals, glorious rose windows, one of the oldest choirs in the country, and beautiful sculptures such as the Virgen de la Esperanza are just a few of the cathedral's many impressive features.
