Attached to the Real Basílica de San Isidoro, Panteón Real houses the remaining sarcophagi, which rest with quiet dignity beneath a canopy of some of the finest Romanesque frescoes in Spain. Motif after colourful motif of biblical scenes drench the vaults and arches of this extraordinary hall, held aloft by marble columns with intricately carved capitals.

The pantheon also houses a small museum where you can admire the shrine of San Isidoro, a mummified finger of the saint (!) and other treasures.

Abutting the southwestern corner of the basilica is a fragment of the former muralla (old city wall).
