Great place to see Leon and the amazing architecture of this building. You can see far and wide of this wonderful colonial city.
As with most churches throughout Central America, the churches are marvels of time and money being spent to glorify their religion. Amazing sculptures and soaring roofs.
Don't be fooled by the homely face of this grand basilica. It's much bigger than it looks. It is well worth the few cordobas to climb to the roof top. It'll surprise you. The views from the top are excellent and you can see most of the volcanos, a few even steaming.
Very interesting historically. Simple but but impressive decorations. Paintings of the Stations of the cross are impressive. Renovations are underway and will greatly enhance the exterior appearance of the cathedral. Recommended. Great view from the roof. Roof access was closed until 2PM the day we visited.
