We loved exploring the interior of the Basilica, however the real treat was the amazing view from the roof! No shoes allowed, so it's a pretty cool experience wandering around barefoot high up above the city, surrounded by volcanos and endless sky!
There's a massive white-wash job going on here, if bigger than the one in DC! The Cathedral is being refinished to hide all of the disfiguring mold that comes with age. You can also go up on the roof for 81 cords ($3 USD), take off your shoes and walk about. Great views, a better understanding of the structure and... 更多
We walked all through Leon and saw a lot of cathedrals, this one was breathtaking! We walked around the main floor inside and out. Then went to the rooftop. Wow! The architecture was stunning, Amazing views of most on Leon as well as the volcanoes surrounding. This place alone is worth a visit to Leon.
Another nice little plaza and market surrounding the Cathedral. Great spot to see the older Spanish architecture and get a little shade from Leon's heat. You can never be disappointed visiting the churches in Leon for their individuality and style. This one is very charming and historical.

Gorgeous views of the city of Leon and the volcanoes in the distance. This is Leon's shinning star. Leon, compared to previous years, has taken... 更多
This was absolutely beautiful and a must see if you are visiting Leon. The basilica is just astounding in size and beauty. My husband and I went during Semana Santa and saw the processional for Good Friday. It was so neat to the church and park all lit up for the holiday.
Basilica itself is not a big deal, but there is a way (about couple bucks) on the rooftop. The walk and views from the rooftop are absolutely great. Since there is not much to do or see in Leon, I would consider it as a main attraction.
The Cathedral is probably the major attraction in Leon. Whilst it is the largest cathedral in Central America, its interior is not grand when compared with its equivalents in South America. The main reasons for visiting is to ascend the roof for a 360 view over Leon. This helps give perspective to the town if you've walked around at ground... 更多
