Templo expiatorio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus

Reviewed By Rick H - Anchorage, Alaska

As with many churches in Mexico, the architecture is incredible. Unfortunately I didn't have time to go inside but I thoroughly enjoyed marveling at it from the outside both day and night.

Museo de Arte E Historia de Guanajuato

Reviewed By edmund c - West Linn, Oregon

A bit light for the world traveler but locally informative. Open, airy and easy stroll thru some local history. Includes reproductions of many classical sculptures, at first out of context but increasingly intriguing as thousands of miles of travel are reduced to several steps.

Arco Triunfal de la Calzada de los Heroes

Reviewed By Lori L - Atlanta, Georgia

This is in the historic downtown district. A nice place to walk, a small row of local crafts such as handmade clothes, scarves, lotions, candies. A few nice bars with outside patios along this route. Can walk a few blocks between here and the Plaza Principal, to see the main sights of Leon. Worth seeing both If you are in this city!

Catedral Basilica de Leon

Reviewed By Jorge E - Leon, Mexico

Mexico's most people are catholic, specially at geographic states at center of Mexican Republic, like Jalisco, Zacatecas, Queretaro and Guanajuato. You can enter to the building all days. You only need respect the ceremonies inside. The building was started at 1764, established Cathedral at 1866. The principal figure is "Madre Santísima de la Luz". Besides the beautiful interior you can know the Museum of Sacred Art. The pope Benedict XVI was in this building at March 25th, 2012.

Centro Comercial Altacia

Reviewed By Marcus P

Although it has been open the public for some years now, there is always a part of Altacia under construction. Parking spots in the shade are not very many, other than that great parking. Good store variety and restaurants to choose. Usually there are expositions and/or shows at the mall, too.

I am a musician and have played here a number of times for both orchestral Concerts and opera productions. It's a beautiful modern theater with surprisingly good acoustics - a real gem. It's amazing that there is no resident orchestra that plays here weekly!

Zona Piel

Reviewed By HeavenCrawley - Mondovi, Italy

As others have said this is a very busy area with lots and lots of shops selling mostly the same kind of thing or mass produced and relatively low quality leather goods rather than anything handcrafted and/or high quality. I bough s leather jacket which was pretty cheap (less than £30) but it's functional rather than anything special. Worth a visit but don't expect to find anything special
