Granada
León Ruins, City Tour & San Jacinto Thermal Mud

This tour gives you the opportunity to see the Ruins of the Old Leon City, first capital of Nicaragua founded in 1524 by Spanish Captain Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba. Differing from Granada, this city had to move to its actual location in 1610 due to a volcanic eruption. The Ruins of Old Leon City were declared World Site Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in the year 2000. Leon was the capital of Nicaragua for over 200 years, until it was replaced by Managua in 1851. Visit Leon’s Cathedral is the largest religious colonial building in Central America, the remains of the immortal and internationally well-known poet, Ruben Dario, are resting there. We will end our tour with a visit to the San Jacinto Thermal Muds,  overviewing the impressive volcanic chain of Nicaragua.
