the calvary church is yet another catholic colonial church. unlike some others, you are allowed to go visit and enter this one, so that is nice.

A few minutes walk from the Cathedral Leon is El Calvario Church. The inside and outside are beautiful and I loved the quiet and calmness compared to the larger one up the street.

This is a colourful church located in Leon. It caught our eye whilst we were at the main cathedral so we wandered down to check it out and we were glad we did, very beautiful.

They are renovating, but still nice to pass through. Much history to learn and see. Some of it good, some sad.

The design is stunning apart from the colourful and vibrant way it has been decorated.Spend a while looking a you see much more than giving it a quick glance.The inside is a little more subtle but still very interesting.

We spotted this church glowing in the sunlight from the top of the Basilica. It was a lovely photo as there is a volcano just beside it. We walked down and got a beautiful photo with the sunlight bouncing off the facade. The church was...More
