León Excursion

At 10:30 am, we'll pick you up at your hotel in Guanajuato and hit the road for León.

After an hour's drive, we'll reach our destination and begin a guided tour of León, starting at the Triumphal Arch of the Causeway of the Heroes, an archway made of bricks, masonry and rebar crowned by a bronze lion.

We'll also visit the colossal Expiatory Sanctuary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Templo Expiatorio), which houses a network of catacombs with a whopping 1,919 crypts, as well as the town's cathedral, flanked by two large neoclassical towers.

Continuing on, we'll pass by the Municipal Palace to learn about its historical trajectory and to see the statue of Benito Juárez that stands in its courtyard. We'll also be sure to stroll through Plaza Fundadores, the origin of the town's commercialization of footwear and leather goods.

Then, you'll have an hour of free time for lunch and, afterward, we'll take you to visit the traditional markets to check out the local leather and shoes for yourself. Did you know that this industry began here as early as the 17th century? You'll love learning about this artisanal shoe tradition!

To top off the experience, we'll also go into a shoe outlet in case you'd like to take some products home with you - surely you won't be able to resist! Finally, we'll make our way back to Guanajuato, where we are scheduled to arrive at 6:30 pm.
