Must see! This defines Leon in its own! Also if you go at night it's very peaceful and also there is a couple of taco stand that's are really good for a quick taco snack..

As one approaches, this is one impressive arch (although I am a little puzzled about a "triumphant" arch dedicated to fallen heroes since they didn't "triumph" much, being dead) but the other side is very bare bones. Odd, I thought.

This is a magnificent archway leading to the historic area of Leon. It is beautifully done and there is a lot of construction and renovations being done to beautify the city. You can't beat the weather here either. Walking around the city is a wonderful way to spend the day.

This arch is the gateway to the historical and cultural district of Leon, and what and entrance it makes: truly an iconic site.
