Leon, with its 300,000 residents was founded in 1524 by Spanish conquistadors, it lies at the base of the Momotombo volcano. An earthquake destroyed the old town of Leon in 1609. It was the capital of Nicaragua for more than 200 years, before the title was handed over to Managua in 1851.


Today, Leon is the 2nd most important city in Nicaragua. This charming city has retained its colonial-style streets and has preserved its old architectural style of one-story houses with tile and wooden roofs. You’ll visit the city’s most beautiful park and the La Asuncion Cathedral. Climb up to the roof and take in the extraordinary panoramic views of the city and the imposing mountains beyond.

Note: The drive to Leon is approximately 1 1/4 hours.
