In Leon Viejo we will have a very interesting tour where we learn about the early history of the first capital city of Nicaragua. On the hill where the fort is buried, we will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Momotombo Volcano and Lake Xolotlan.
We then continue to the city of Leon to see the main churches including the monumental cathedral, the largest in Central America, located at the main square. We will also see the birth house of writer/poet Ruben Dario, the “Ortiz Gurdian” art gallery and the “El Convento Hotel” and its colonial architecture. During the walking tour, you learn from the historic murals the role played by Leon in the social, economic and political development of Nicaragua. We will visit the “Hervideros de San Jacinto”, and feel the heat close up and see the boiling mud inside these small craters.
Transportation with a/c, bilingual guide, entrance fees & lunch.
