in detail

The Desierto de los Leones National Park (Parque Nacional Desierto de los Leones) is a forest to the south of the city. Although the name evokes a desert and the kings of the jungle, what visitors will find here is a former convent of the seventeenth century, which belonged to the Discalced Carmelites. In addition to prominent vegetation, there is a small river and a number of service providers for recreational activities through which children spend the best adventures.

Every weekend its more than 500 hectares are filled with cultural and artistic events, sporting events, spaces for exercise, food and other popular Mexican celebrations. The Desierto de Los Leones is one of the favorite places for defeños to go running or take part in mountain trail races.

The climate is temperate, cloudy with rain in the summer. The forest has trees like fir, ash, oak and the characteristic fauna of the area. The former Carmelite Convent in the National Park is an idyllic place to visit with tunnels, gardens, and a trout and deer reserve called "Los peteretes".
