I love old churches and I make a point of visiting them when I travel. This one for me is the most beautiful church of Leon. It is easily accessible, located downtown. It is well worth a visit

All churches in Leon are worth to visit. You will find quiet and cool places inside, especially during the hot season.

There is nothing quite like the sight of Church the Recollection. It's outstanding yellow, and olden architecture is beautiful. It's 2 blocks from central park and near the markets. A lot of school kids hang out outside the church. Try and visit inside if the...More
