Mozarabic splendour in León

The Monastery of San Miguel de La Escalada is a beautiful example of the Mozarabic style in the province of León. It was built by Cordoban monks in 913, and its cenobium has a sturdy Romanesque tower dating from the late 11th century.

The church belonging to the monastery has a basilical floor plan with three naves which are lined by horseshoe arches and covered with wooden ceilings. Particular highlights include the portico, formed by twelve horseshoe arches supported on columns with capitals.
