Visit one of the city's landmarks at Catedral de Granada, a neoclassical church that dominates the urban skyline. The 1972 edifice features a striking red and yellow facade, along with two domed towers and bell tower. Walking through the church's five altars, and look for the sacred image of the Virgen de la Concepción, saved from destruction by fire in 1856. Also, pay attention to the main altar's statue of Mary surrounded by silver, and backed by blue mosaic tiles. Climb the bell tower to enjoy views of the city, the lake, and the volcano in the distance.

  • Climb to the top of the bell tower.... Or just stroll inside.... Best dollar you will spend. Park in front is bustling with food and people hustling tour attractions. Walk down the side streets, even ...  more »
  • Casula visited it on 29 November celebrating THE DESCENT of the Virgin with music band, military escort and joy popular both in the rites of the temple, and the subsequent parade through the streets of a city.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful yellow and red Cathedral. Outside is in great condition.
  • Very nice colonial architecture.
