    Description :

    The royal church of San Isidoro at Leon was erected, between 1054 and 1067, by Ferdinand I of Castile to hold the body of St. Isidore, but of this church practically nothing is left except a great western narthex, which is one of the glories of early Romanesque in Spain. It is thoroughly Burgundian in style, with massive columns, magnificent capitals, and groined vaulting, which was painted, in 1190, with splendid frescoes.
