Nice area to walk and check out a few restaurants. No parking near the blvd. Grounds are very well taken care of, but the cafe's look old and not very appealing to eat, but maybe have a few drinks.

Can walk a few blocks between here and the Plaza Principal, to see the main sights of Leon. Worth seeing both If you are in... More

You see one, you've seen them all. It was nice but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. But if you go to this area (which you should), it's a nice perk.

Walk along Calle Calz. de los Hereos all the way to Francisco Madero and the Plaza Principal. You will pass the main attractions of the old city, shops and coffee places.

A must see when in Leon GTO. You can walk the "malecón", which is the beautiful boardwalk, perfect for a morning stroll or any time of day, in fact. Nice landscaping, relatively clean. Pet friendly.
