“Leon is heaven for shoe lovers. You drive through town and all you see is outlets, stores and shops. You drive around the area and there are huge billboards luring you to purchase fantastic boots and shoes. The only drawback is that the size of the average Mexican woman is quite small. They laugh at me when I enter a store.
One could almost forget about the other fascinating features of this modern city…like the cathedral, museum and captivating downtown. “
