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.

  • Past the entrance €5 one is struck by the brightness of the whole of the white pillars and numerous skylights. The choir is beautiful and the chapels surrounding the altar are remarkable with exceptional altarpieces. A must see.

  • I liked the place, small and comfortable. The food is not spectacular, but good. Do not accept card, so I had to go up to the cashier but close just after my lunch. To be able to pay and go.

  • Easily you can go up and give you a nice view from the balcony of the cathedral to the whole central plaza
  • I just love to come to the cathedral's bell tower... You get a different perspective and views of Granada.. A must visit
  • 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!
  • I've visited lots of churches in Masaya. Also in Catarina, León and Estelí. There is no church like this.
  • Amazing and iconic colonial Cathedral
