  • Beautiful colors. We checked out the crypts under the church.it does close during the and opens back up. I think it was 20 pesos to go in. The bathroom is behind the church.
  • It is a very beautiful place that you must visit in Leon!! And if you have a chance to go inside, DO IT! It is even more beautiful. When I was there I felt I could breathe freshy peacefulness air. Very nice place to sit down, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
