Ortiz Gurdian Foundation Art Center Tours and Tickets
Nicaragua may not be known for its museums, but León’s Ortiz Gurdián Foundation Art Center holds its own. The center seamlessly blends a private collection of national and international art, from renowned Nicaraguan painter Armando Morales to world-famous artists like Rubens, Miró, Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, and Diego Rivera.
See Nicaragua’s cultural, historical, and religious capital in a day on this walking tour of Leon. Depart from the port to explore this colonial city on foot with a small group of 15 people or fewer, crossing both must-see spots and local attractions off your sightseeing list.
Leon was founded in 1524 by Spanish conquerors, but it had to be moved in 1610 about 30 miles west where is now our destination.
Travel with me and you won’t get long boring history talks, but personal professional and dedicated service besides anecdotes and fascinating stories.
16 years working in a beautiful city and country, I am willing and happy to show you the best of this colonial town.
Let's explore Leon and hear about 495 years and its evolution from colonial slavery to North American’s intervention, Sandinista revolution, Contra revolution and more, exploring our art gallery beside the largest Catedral in Central America declared a world heritage site.
On the way back to the port we will detour to San Jacinto Mud pods viewing the mud pits of different sizes, depths, and colors. See nature's force in action as the mud bubbles and churns, spitting up geysers of steam.
Now we are ready!
Thank you very much.
