Iglesia San Juan de Dios - Historical Building Leon - Nicaragua

The fa├žade of Iglesia San Juan de Dios, which overlooks a park of the same name, is a mottled grey and not exactly what you would call pretty. The exterior, reconstructed by Mons. Santiago Abarca in the 1850s, conceals a lovely white interior with glass cases of saints and delicate ceiling murals. The church itself was originally constructed in 1739. Be aware during your visit that the nearby park is dirty and dodgy and that, while tThe church itself is on the edge of Leon's relatively safe downtown, the more dangerous bus depot area is also nearby.

Location:
Leon, Nicaragua
