  • For $1, you literally have no excuse not to visit the top of the cathedral. The views are excellent and you'll end up getting some great overall pics of the city. The cathedral itself is beautiful so I strongly recommend visiting!
  • The colonial town of Granada is such a special place. The architecture and colors of the Cathedral of Granada is spectacular. Beautiful inside and amazing outside. At night they light up the cathedral and it is stunning. You don't need to be religious to appreciate it.
  • My experiences in Granada, Nicaragua were some of the best moments of my life. This beautiful, little colonial town and the people in it reminded me what it's like to be alive. Definitely going again someday!
  • Spectacular place! At night, this cathedral and it´s surroundings light up to a very romantic atmosphere. Granada is magical and gorgeous.
  • Brilliant colors and architecture. Granada is one of the oldest colonial cities of Central America, this building and others around the city will confirm it.
