This Plaza in central Leon is well kept with pretty sculpted bushes. I really like the old style bandstand in the middle! This plaza is a great place to get your shoes shined.

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!

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

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.
