  • The expiatory Temple is the architectural jewel of Leon, took more than one hundred years to be completed and is visited by thousands and thousands of people a year, recently have added you a square that made that even more majestic look. Its Gothic style makes it spectacular and night lighting makes magical along Madero Street.

  • In cellars is a very nice catacomb, feels the company of so many people that it is only the experience of being just beyond below, is half-lion in a total peace of mind that only gives eternal life, do not miss it and not of des to the hindquarters of the same, leaving feel have returned to life.

  • A striking construction dimensions even though it is a combination of styles which hampered its completion but which resulted in a magnificent building with a large acoustic internal worthy of comparison with any of the great cathedrals of the World!
