Volcan Mombacho 2
There are some days where the cloud is so thick over the volcano that you wouldn’t even know it was there
On one of the islands we saw some monkeys and one with a baby clinging to it which was fantastic. They are used to tourists so they come down to get a look at you.
As you go down the street you jostle with shoppers, cars, bicycles and horses for space whilst dodging the stalls that spill out onto the road.
Iglesia de Guadeloupe
This church on Calle Calzada used to be a fort before it became a church. I did not actually go inside ( I was probably a bit churched out) but it is beautiful from the outside.
Convento y Iglesia San Francisco 6
Many of the statues that were found on Ometepe are housed here as well as some Petroglyphs (all pre-columbian).
Parc central 2
The park is beautifully laid out with stalls on the 4 corners selling drinks and snacks, there are ice cream vendors as well as some stalls selling wooden pots, jewellery etc
Parc central 1
The central Parc brings the city together. Granada has a very small town feel, all the horse drawn taxis leave from here.
The views from the top are well worth it. You can see everything from there down towards Lake Nicaragua, the volcano and the whole of Granada. Please see my travelogue for more pictures.
Iglesia de la Merced
This beautiful church is two blocks west of Parc Central and is definitely worth visiting. If the caretaker is around he may let you climb the belltower.
The Church tower
We managed to find the caretaker and he let us climb up the bell tower (just give him a tip and he is quite happy to open up for you).
