View from the cathedral roof
From the roof of León's cathedral, (Central America's largest), you can contemplate the long line of active volcanoes on the horizon just beyond Nicaragua's second-largest city. Colonial churches, such as the 18th-c. Calvario in this scene, punctuate the low skyline. "On top of the world" in this tropical university-town might not be that high, but there's enough heat and history to give you plenty of perspective.
