  • León Cathedral (León, Nicaragua): The biggest church in Central America is a must-see when visiting the historical university city of León. The cathedral is home to some masterpieces of Spanish colonial art, and a statue of a black Christ still bears the hack wounds of a pirate's sword. Here, you'll find the Tomb of Rubén Darío, guarded by a weeping lion. At the cathedral's center is a beautiful, Spanish-style courtyard known as the Patio de Príncipes. The cathedral's domed roof holds the bell La Libertad that announced to the world the independence of Central America, and its Gothic roof is a terrace of lichen-stained cupolas and buttresses with a commanding view of the surrounding city and countryside.
  • Granada Cathedral (Granada, Nicaragua): The luminous, ochre-colored facade of this simple church dominates the skyline of this beautiful colonial city, setting the tone for an enchanting stay in what is undoubtedly Nicaragua's most beautiful town.
