Sahagún is a historic city that stretches
on top of a smooth mound, whose nerve centre is the main square,
or Plaza Mayor, which still has its original porches. We can find
this city sixty-seven kilometres to the south east of León.
In the streets we can see some houses with brick and wooden structures, and some others that were built with clay and straw. The local artistic heritage, the legacy of a booming past, includes remarkable buildings such as the monastery of San Benito el Real, from which only a Neoclassical arch still stands; the Mudejar churches of San Tirso and San Lorenzo, from the 12th and 13th centuries, respectively; the convent of the Benedictines, nowadays the site of the Sahagún Museum; and the sanctuary of Peregrina, in the outskirts.
