CATEDRAL BASÍLICA.- Álvaro Obregón esq. Hidalgo, Zona Centro Data de 1765 y fue remozada en el Siglo XIX por el Arq. Luis Long. Se cataloga como la más completa catedral del país de ese siglo. Tiene una hermosa fachada barroca con seis capillas en su interior, dos de ellas ( San Joséy La Soledad) importantísimas obras de arte del Siglo XIX. Se venera en ella a la Madre Santísima de la Luz, patrona de la ciudad. Es sede de la Diócesis de León.

Las puertas del atrio fueron elaboradas en hierro en la cercana población de Comanja, Jalisco y, son una obra de arte. Las campanas del reloj fueron fundidas en León por Refugio del Castillo. Las torres fueron construídas por el Licenciado Joaquín Rocha. Los óleos son de Rivas y la ebanistería en madera de mezquite de Berumen, Manzo y Verduzco.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
