Show sight on map

The so-called Cul de la Lleona or Lleona de Girona is a sculptural piece of limestone from Girona, dating from the twelfth century, which is part of the Inventory of the Architectural Heritage of Catalonia. Its fame and popular value have been increasing especially since 1986, the year in which a copy of the original was made, preserved in the Girona Art Museum, and placed on Carrer de Calderers, at the foot of the staircase of the church of Sant Feliu, a strategic point in the Old Town of Girona. The capital crowning the set appears to be later than the date mentioned. The lion, or lioness, is voluminous in relief, and has a noticeably deteriorated part of its face and tail. You can see some large claws and the head turned to the side, a typical layout that can be seen in many Romanesque capitals (in the monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants, current headquarters of the Archaeological Museum of Girona. Its legend has crossed borders and is one of the tourist icons par excellence of the city.
