We walked to the cathedral but it was closed. We went back at 2 pm and it was open and a small charge was made if you wanted to go through with a guide. We did and it was very worthwhile. Our guide was Blazy and she was excellent. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is being restored... 更多
Visiting the roof will give you a great view over the city and volcanoes. The roof is all white and gives an great opportunity for nice photos.
Beautiful old church. Dont miss the climb to the roof. Up there you can see all around and the 5 volcanos. The stairs are very narrow and steep but I did it in a walking cast. You have to remove shows on top of pure white roof
The Basilica is being given a much needed clean so that it is crisp and white. You can go up on the roof and survey the city. It's a great photo opportunity, no shoes allowed so it can be a bit hot on the feet. Inside you see the domes from the other side as they form the impressive ceiling.
The opening times of the roof is 8:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00 except on Sunday. Sadly we did arrive after 16:00 on Saturday so we misted the roof. We could walk in without problem. On the plaza in front of the cathedral local vendors did sell drinks, local foot and souvenirs. The facade of the cathedral was beautiful lighted in the sunset.... 更多
The Cathedral was beautiful but the most interesting part were the view of Leon from the roof. If you are not scared of heights, take the walk.
It was definitely worth the $3 to walk around the cathedral roof (barefoot or with socks). The view of the city of Leon and the surrounding volcanoes was spectacular! The ticket office is a little difficult to find and the cashier didn't speak English, so it took us a little while to find the stairs to go up. The view... 更多
Do not miss the climb to the bell tower and roof top of this aging cathedral, for white domed prancing in bare feet and breathtaking views of the city and surrounding volcanoes. Bring socks as you can't wear your shoes and buy tickets at the main entrance.
When we were visiting, they were repainting the Cathedral, the front and the roof had been compled. This is the crown jewel of Leon's many gems. This catherdal can hold its own to many of Europe's cathedrals and is the largest cathedral in all of Latin America. A visit to the roof is a spectacular endeavor. We had no expectations... 更多
