Impressive, this neo-gothic monument. And a variety to all these baroque colonial churches, you see everywhere in Mexico. At first we didn’t want to go to see it, because we thought, it’s just another Mexican church. But it is not. It’s really awesome.

A beautiful museum mostly dedicated to the history of León. It has a limited collection of art works by Mexican artits. It also has replicas of Greek and Roman sculptures. Finally it has a small art bookstore.
