León Viejo World Heritage Site in Nicaragua

One of the earliest civilizations of the Spanish crown in Latin America, Leon Viejo was once the country’s capital city until the surrounding Momotombo Volcano erupted in the early 1600s causing widespread damage. In order to avoid another such occurrence, the inhabitants of the city decided to move the capital to a site roughly twenty miles away where the colonial city of Leon rests today.
