The oldest colonial city on the Isthmus, full of historic & cultural treasures
Founded in 1524 Granada is the oldest colonial city on the Isthmus; that heritage adds to the charm and character of the place today.
Today's Granada is a delightful town, it's streets are lined with Spanish-style houses with large wooden doors opening onto cool interior patios. A wonderful walking city, although some buildings appear to be on the verge of collapse, many others have been beautifully renovated and now function as restaurant, hotel, or residential home. A great way to get a nice overview of the city is by ascending the towers of the La Merced church.
Two of the main attractions in this area are: Lake Nicaragua, an enormous freshwater lake that houses hundreds of small isletas, and the Mombacho Volcano, an imposing volcano that has a lot to offer.
You will find a wide range of accommodation options in Granada , from small boutique hotels to small Bed & Breakfasts.
