Nicaragua: Granada colonial

The colonial city Granada, south of the Lago de Nicaragua

It is the third biggest city of Nicaragua

Granada today is one of the most important touristic centers of Nicaragua. One of the most important reasons for the attraction is the historic quarter. But there are als many other exciting destinations located in and around the City. One of the example is the volcano “Mombacho” and the nearby “Lago de Nicaragua” as well as “las Isletas”- a group of around 365 islands created by an eruption of the volcano Mombacho. It has an unique biodiversity.

The most famous landmark of Granada is the “Cathedral”, which was constructed in the year 1529 and is located in the center of the city. The cathedral is one of the major buildings in all of Central America. The “la Merced-church”, situated at the main marketplace, is very nice as well.

The “Isletas de Granada” are located in the lake nearby- in Lake Nicaragua. The lake begins at the southeast- end of the city and is easily accessible from downtown. “Las Isletas” are a group of about 365 small islands scattered around the Asese peninsula. The small islands were formed when the Mombacho erupted thousands of years ago and blew its cone into the lake. “Las Isletas” are overgrown and famous for bird- watching.

Many of the islands are privately owned and used for vacation houses. But you will also find some hotels and shops on the islands and the fishermen offer boat tours.
