(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Admire the ornamental design and impressive scale of Templo expiatorio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus, a Catholic cathedral. Construction began in 1921 and took some 91 years to complete--just in time for a visit from Pope Benedict XVI. Displaying a richly decorative Gothic Revival aesthetic, the large cathedral dominates the surrounding area, with the plaza at its front serving as a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. The interior features an atmospheric crypt with seven catacombs, and an impressive marble altar. Templo expiatorio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Leon Edition.

  • Amazing place myths about si coming lion should not miss this spectacular place close to the Centre of León
    View original
  • It is undoubtedly the most impressive cathedral of Mexico. The crystals resemble the Sagrada Familia. Leon is a more European style of Mexico City.

  • You are given very little promotion to this ARTWORK, which undoubtedly is in the top 3 of best religious buildings in ALL Mexico. A must visit.

  • Hermoso templo
  • The church is beautiful and loved the market! The people are very friendly too
  • Audacious and surreal, a pastel dream of Notre Dame
  • It's quite an extraordinary church, especially inside. It that stands in an empty square, which makes all the more visible.
  • Very nice place
