Templo expiatorio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus, Leon

(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.

  • Hermoso templo
  • The church is beautiful and loved the market! The people are very friendly too
