Fronting beautiful central park, this beautiful church is very impressive. They say that it's the biggest church in Central America and I believe it. The inside is richly painted and there are statues everywhere. The national poet of Nicaragua is buried there. There is a huge marble lion on top of his grave not far from the main alter. the... 更多
Beautiful decoration inside and don't miss the lion - whose top half of the face looks just like a person. Make sure you take the (steep) stairs to the top. The roof had recently been repainted when I was there (May 2016) and you need to take your shoes off to go outside. Take a hat and sunglasses to protect... 更多
Great views of the city once you pay $3 USD to climb the stairs to the top. The roof is painted in all white and makes for some stunning photos. The times for climbing to the roof are limited, so plan ahead.
Nice cathedral, it gets renovated at the moment the front is nice and blanco, but one side is still quite dirty which kind of adds to the Nica charm. It's also worth going up to the roof, bring sunglasses it's very bright. The entrance is 3$ which is a little steep for Nicaragua, however it's still worth the visit.
Go! Go! Go! Buy a ticket at the back of the church. Go on to the roof take of your shoes or flip flops an walk on the roof. Its great. But wear sunglasses. You get blinded from the white roof. It hurts your eyes. A fantastic view over Leon.
Going up on the roof of the Cathedral is a must-do in Leon. It does not just offer beautiful views of the city and the surrounding (5? 6?) volcanoes, but is an otherworldly place in itself - bright white and domed. You have to take your shoes off to go on the roof. Usually open from 3-5 in the afternoons... 更多
This cathedral is very lovely. The architecture is outstanding. Inside you will find a tribute to Ruben Dario the father of modern Spanish Literature. A very fascinating place filled with tradition and history.
The Cathedral in León is a beautiful building, and well worth a visit of you are interested in architecture and/or churches. But the crown of the visit is going up on the roof. The ticket office is on the back side of the building, and it costs 85 cordobas. It is closed between 12-14, and they will make you leave... 更多
