History
In the city of Leon are a lot op wall drawings, churches and statues. I read a lot about the war and problems in the last 50 years. The revolution which started in 1979 (until 1990), the relationship with the USA, current president Ortega which started the revolution.

1. Read about the war and history of the country.

3. You will see stories in beautiful drawings.
