Desierto de los Leones ex-Convent
Loading recommendation %...
Even though this ex-convent was built in the XVII century by the Barefoot Carmelite Order, it is very well preserved. The peaceful and forested surroundings are precisely the reason the site was selected then, today they are still available to the public. Visitors can explore on their own or take a tour through the historic building, then walk around through one of the many trails located along the forest.
This interesting place is open to anyone looking to take a little break from the buzzing city. Bikers, runners, and families enjoy this place a lot.
