If you stand by the statue of Morazán
in the central park and look up north, La Leona is the first concrete thing you see as you drop your gaze down from the statue of Christ.
Francisco Morazán was a Honduran, born in Tegucigalpa, who served as president of Central America (1830-1840) during its short tenure as a united nation.
birthplace, one block north of the peatonal, is marked by a plaque off Calle Mendiete (on a the north wall of a building on the west side of the street.) He
advocated free elections and popular education, and so was executed by conservatives in 1842.
