Leon

— 2 nights
A cultured and storied city, Leon attracts guests from all over the world, drawn to the second city's style, thriving intellectual life, and liveliness.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Sat): get impressive views of Telica Volcano, get impressive views of Cerro Negro Volcano, and then shop like a local with Juanmarcos Design. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Iglesia San Juan Bautista de Subtiava, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral de la Asunción, then examine the collection at Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church The Recollection.

La Gran Sultana
