Leon City - Walking Tour


Explore the rich cultural and political history of one of Nicaraguas oldest and most influential cities. Defined by its graceful Spanish colonial architecture and fascinating political history, you will soon discover why León is considered to be Nicaragua's historical, cultural, educational and religious capital. The best way to explore this captivating city is by foot, as much of its charm lies in the narrow colonial streets, museums, restaurants and cafes. In this guided walking tour you will visit revolutionary murals, baroque and neoclassical churches and a surprisingly interesting museum of legends, arts and poetry.

In addition, you will get to climb to the rooftop of Central America's largest cathedral, recently added to UNESCO´s list of World Heritage, and enjoy the amazing views over the city and surrounding Maribios Volcanic Chain. During the tour we will also explore numerous colonial buildings, among them, Nicaragua's first university.
