Leon Historical Walking City Tour
You will begin your tour at Masuleo Park, known for its historical murals. These murals tell a story beginning in 1520 just before the Spanish arrived in an attempt to conquer the indigenous people of Nicaragua. Through pictures and personal stories you will come to understand the political strife the people endured and after great atrocities, finally rose above.
Next you will visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Leon's magnificent catholic Cathedral. Built in 1747 for the Spanish by the indigenous people, the Cathedral is an incredible example of colonial architecture. After seeing the view from the roof of the cathedral you will understand why this is a must see destination when visiting Leon city.
You will visit the bustling central market where the locals shop for fruits and vegetables, traditional meals and you will have the chance to buy everything from cigars, coffee, and souvenirs from local artists.
Saving the best for last, you will visit the Ortiz Gurdian Art Gallery. This gallery holds a treasure for the eye to behold. Opening in December 6, 2000 the Ortiz Gurdian Gallery is one of the most impressive galleries in all of Central America.

You will see paintings from Armando Morales, one of Central America's most prominent artists, Humberto Calzada, a famous Cuban artist along with many others including the great "Picasso".
