San Isidoro del Campo Monastery


The monastery was declared a Historic and Artistic Building of national interest on 10 April 1872. It was founded by Duke Alonso Pérez de Guzmán and his wife María Alonso de Coronel in 1301 to serve as the family tomb and bear witness to their piety. It was built on the site of a Mozarabic chapel, where local legend said Saint Isidore had been buried before being moved to the collegiate church of León in 1063. The monastery was occupied by Hieronymite monks until the confiscations of Mendizábal. Every artistic style is represented: Mudéjar in the Cloister of the Dead and Cloister of the Evangelists, the restrained Baroque of the Escorial in the Sacristy and the Chapter Hall, Gothic in the refectory and its cloister, and Baroque in the tower.
