It corresponds to the restoration carried out in the 1970s under the management of the architect Luis Menéndez-Pidal Álvarez.

The cathedral of León, although its origins date from the 13th century when it was built in the purest French Gothic style, has come down to us today thanks to the numerous works of consolidation and restoration which have been carried out over the centuries. Records of part of these works, ocurring both during the 19th and 20th centuries, are deposited in the General Archive of the Administration.
