Leon is located in the state of Guanajuato in central Mexico. Located in the mountains, the city has a temperate climate. It is not to be confused with the state of Nuevo Leon to the north (close to Texas). Leon is known for its shoe making and leather work, so shoppers will find an incredible selection of shoes and other high quality leather goods in Leon (try the plazas on Boulevard Hilario Medina for the best prices).
==== LEON – ACTIVITIES
Walking around the main plaza you will find the city’s colonial buildings, and nearby are the cultural center and Teatro Doblado (theater). Another worthwhile visit is Leon’s Historical Archives. And if you are a soccer fan, you might be able to catch a game at the soccer stadium.
