Restored with an ornate interior in the 1860s, the church today contains an image of the Virgen de Fatima, a sacred object that draws many pilgrims. Climb up the bell tower that flanks the church to gain extensive views of the city and beyond, including many major urban and natural attractions.

  • Beautiful photogenic Church that also has a tower for $1 visited and can be climbed for a breathtaking view of Granada. I found the outside nicer than inside. The Church is two blocks away from the main square. Visit this church!

  • One of the oldest churches of Granada the colonial city of Nicaragua and easily can climb the tower and get an amazing views of the whole granada city
  • a colonial and very pretty church, charges U$ 1 to go up on the bell tower however not at sun set, I got disappointed. Yet the interior ir gorgeous.
  • Pretty average church with nice facade and stunning view from the top tower. $1 fee to go up the tower.
  • The climb to the bell tower cost 1$ and provides a great view on the city in the late afternoon
  • Nice view from the tower. 30 cordobas.
