Visit Museo Ruben Dario, the house of Nicaraguan poet, icon, journalist, and diplomat Ruben Dario. Massive brown doors greet you and lead into the charming, lush courtyard built in typical colonial style. Info boards in Spanish tell Dario’s story, from his early days at age 12 through to his death in 1916. Enter the old colonial residence and get a glimpse into history, for every piece of rustic yet humble furniture speaks for itself. See old black and white photos, intimate writings and manuscripts, and Dario's treasured bible. The bedroom where the famous poet ended his life has been preserved in its original state. A visit to Museo Ruben Dario represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Leon trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
