Landmark
Witness the grand architecture standing tall over the historic center of the city at Plaza de la Revolucion. A cathedral, park, monument to the heroes of the revolution, and the museum of national culture surround the square, made from flat asphalt. It remains well lit day and night as floodlights and the surrounding buildings stay illuminated in the evening. Combine a visit to the square by heading inside the national museum or strolling through the park. Plan your Plaza de la Revolucion visit and explore what else you can see and do in Managua using our Managua vacation route planner.
