Leon City Experience

Explore the rich cultural and political history of one of Nicaragua's oldest and most influential cities

Defined by its graceful Spanish colonial architecture and fascinating political history, you will soon discover why León is at once considered to be Nicaragua’s historical, cultural, educational and religious capital. The best way to explore this captivating city is on 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 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.
