Granada Travel Guide


Overview

Granada is the oldest colonial city founded in Nicaragua and American territory. It was the most important city in the whole region given its strategic location on the shores of the Great Lake of Nicaragua and with easy access to both Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

It was the center of trade for 4 centuries and today remains the focus of most important tourist attraction in Nicaragua.

To visit Granada is to make a trip in the tunnel of the time because the constructions and the forms of transport remain untouchable to provide visitors alone an incomparable stay only available on "The Great Sultana." This city was founded by Don Francisco Hernandez of Cordoba in 1524, by orders of Pedrarias Davila (De Avila). The name is in honor of the city of Granada in Spain and on behalf of the great Sultana is for the same reason as it was for precisely the same time that Spain was freed from the Muslim invasion that had remained for 700 years in the Iberian Peninsula.

The strolls in carriage pulled by horses are a routine not only for tourist but for the people of Grenada who prefer the old style to modern transport. As it is a small city; everything can comfortably reached by foot.

This city is rich in colonial architecture from which you will appreciate: The old Spanish fortress, La Merced and Xalteva churches, The Convent of San Francisco (built in 1524), Casa de los Leones (a portal carved in stone with the head of two lions)

Today, Grenada has become the most touristic city of Nicaragua, and located on the shores of the Great Lake of Nicaragua and including "The Isletas of Granada" and from here it is easy to access to the island of Ometepe.

Grenada has very good and modern hotels to accommodate the most demanding tourist. From this city you can travel to other tourist spots and attractions such as Nicaragua's Pacific Island of Ometepe, Masaya, Managua, and Rivas Nicaragua etc...
