Sunday midday: Lots of shade, benches and music

Beautiful square with added bonus of free brass band music from midday to 1p. Ideal for people watching.

LOTS of people there with kids and family (Sunday) so that was great. Not a lot to do there really but just sit and people watch. The whole square could use a make over, but....glad we went to see it. Couple places to eat in the square. They seemed ok although we didn't eat there.

I visited this plaza early in the morning and activities and people were just gathering. It rivals plazas of Paris, I kid you not. Go and see.

Great food, great shops, beautiful Mexican central plaza, kids, families and people doing many interesting things. This the heart beat of León. The central market is near by which is also excellent, I still dream of my extra shrimp cocktails for pennies on the peso!

There are a lot of local people hanging out in the afternoon. It is beautiful, but too crowded. There are only few restaurants around and most of them are pizzaria.
