What a treat to see the majestic facade of the Church of the Recollection. The architecture, the color. While we barely got a peek, as mass was occurring, it was still well worth it to go by the church and revel in its beauty.

Yet another stunning church near to several others in the city. We viewed this church initially from the roof of the Cathedral. The facade is ornate baroque and best viewed in the afternoon or evening light. Well worth a quick walk from the Cathedral -...More

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

The Cathedral gets all the press, but this church has really grown on me. It changes color at dusk. I'm tempted to book a room in the new hotel they're building across the street to get another view.

This only one of the beautiful churches within walking distance of each other. This one is unmistakable from the gold colored exterior. We never got an opportunity to get a look inside, the doors were locked. There is plenty to admire from outside.

The Churches in Nicaragua are so stunning! Spent a brief moment admiring this church as the sun was coming down. Just the architecture and color made it stand out in town. It was so lovely to admire!
