This Plaza in central Leon is well kept with pretty sculpted bushes. I really like the old style bandstand in the middle! This plaza is a great place to get your shoes shined.

Great food, great shops, beautiful Mexican central plaza, kids, families and people doing many interesting things. This the heart beat of León. The central market is near by which is also excellent, I still dream of my extra shrimp cocktails for pennies on the peso!

There are a lot of local people hanging out in the afternoon. It is beautiful, but too crowded. There are only few restaurants around and most of them are pizzaria.
