  • Also the Cathedral of Granada is worth a visit. Of course a large building, with two chapels. Beautiful images along the walls. Light a candle or go on one of the pews are to the atmosphere, which is very casual. A visit is free.

  • 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
