This is the main church in Leon and Mass was being said during my visit. The interior is spectacular.

We attended Mass here and were quite taken by the spiritual ambiance of the Catedral. We recommend a visit here as the building itself has some stunning architectural features. It is also a wonderful place to stop and pray

Nice views over Leon and the surrounding volcanoes from the roof of the cathedral. Try to get there early since it gets very hot up there. Entrance to climb the roof is through a separate door from the outside.
