León - Iglesia El Calvario

I was surprised by the cyclist. That’s why he isn’t placed better on the picture.
A visit of the El Calvario Church in León is best done just before sunset, at least to take pictures with the warm glow on its front facade.
For the daylight colours have a look in the WS.

The exterior of the Iglesia El Calvario was built symmetrically.
Its facade is quite special with the very bright colours.
Despite its neoclassical style, its decoration includes some Baroque elements.
El Calvario church is one of the many churches in León and a beautiful one.

León is located in the northwest of Nicaragua. Culturally it’s very rich. Also a university town and for me personally, the most pleasant town where I stayed several days.
In 2016, the municipality of León had an projected population of 206.264 but it has the feel of a small town.
