Explore old Leon City. Unlike Granada, which held steady, this city was forced to move to its current location in 1610. The Ruins of Old Leon City were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 2000. Leon was the capital of Nicaragua for over 200 years until being replaced by Managua in 1851.

Travel to Leon’s Cathedral—the largest religious colonial building in Central America. The remains of the internationally-known poet Ruben Dario still rest here. Enjoy a visit to the Ruben Dario Museum, the Ortiz-Gurdian Art Galley (one of the top private art galleries in Latin America), and several other important sites.

End your tour with a walk through the San Jacinto Volcanic Fields, a place where steaming hot water and gasses bubble up through the mud from deep inside the earth. An otherworldly experience set amidst the incredible views of Nicaragua’s impressive volcanic chain.
