Leon, Spain

Leon is a very vibrant city with with lots of fun, and a display of medieval, Gothic, Renaissance, and Modernist architecture.  Our hotel sits on the side of a busy square. 

On Wednesday morning, the square turned into a farmer's market.   bought some nice cherry, donuts peaches , and tomatoes. 
Walking around town saw a varieties of buildings:



We experienced rain and hail right outside the cathedral, which gave us an opportunity to witness that the gargoyles do work pretty effectively:
This one had its tongue sticking out:

Inside the cathedral:
 The punishment for sinners:
 Gorgeous stained glasses:
Another cute Spanish bull in a manger:

 Outside on the street:

We had the best freshly made churros with chocolate:
