Museum and Basilica of Saint Isidoro
Located in the same monumental complex as our Hotel, the Real Collegiate of Saint Isidoro has been declared a National Monument and is considered one of the most complete sets from the Romanesque era. Additionally, you can visit the Royal Pantheon, the Museum of Saint Isidoro, the Collegiate Library and the Oriental and Biblical Museum.
In the year 1063, King Fernando and Queen Sancha had the Basilica of Saint Isidoro, adjoining the Royal Pantheon, consecrated. To ennoble it, they brought from Seville the mortal remains of Saint Isidoro and endowed it with a plentiful, rich treasure. The interior’s best features are its set of ornamented columns, its half-pointed arches and its alternating luminosity. Outside you can admire the southern door, also known as the Door of the Lamb, and the Door of Forgiveness, used by pilgrims to access inside and solicit forgiveness for their sins: both doors represent a milestone in Romanesque sculpture.
