Tomb of Ruben Dario - Historical Building Leon - Nicaragua

Inside the Catedral de Leon and just to the right of the altar, look for a life-sized statue of a depressed-looking lion. Here, at the base of a massive column, lies Ruben Dario, Leon's favorite son. The monument bears his name, as well as a collection of beautiful neo-classical sculptures. Other tombs to look out for in the cathedral include Alfonso Cortes and independence fighter Miguel de Larreynaga.
