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.

This structure is not old but it has very old historic value and is worth a detour. It stands over the old entrance to Leon.
