León - La Recolección

With the intense intense yellow colour of its facade and bell tower the Iglesia La Recolección is one of the most remarkable churches in León. Moreover, the facade is also very richly decorated.

The construction of La Recolección began on December 5, 1785.
Swirling columns and bas-relief medallions in Mexican-style baroque portray the life of Christ.

After the cathedral, this church is probably the most photographed building in León.
