Nicaraguan Travel and Must-See Granada

One of the most fashionable locations for foreigners to journey when they visit Nicaragua is the town of Granada. This small colonial settlement is a glimpse into history and what the country appeared as when Europeans occupied the area. The metropolis contains colonial architecture built at some stage in the Spanish occupation and is still captivating to look upon. The town has maintained its old world uniqueness through the years. Nevertheless, it feels similar to a step back in time and with locals assembling outside on their porches, the classic European- style buildings and horse-drawn carts strolling about.

If you choose to holiday in Granada, be sure to take time to take in its innate splendor and culture. Go to Lake Nicaragua, one of the greatest lakes in Central America and spend time discovering its edge. The natural enticements in this area of the lake and area in general, are striking to pay a visit to and virtually unfathomable to imagine. In addition to, the volcano peaks in the background provide an enigmatic background to the region that enhances its mysticism. Go on a trip up Volcano Mombacho, and be sure to tour the native colonial buildings, particularly the cathedrals, and entrench yourself deep into the culture of the locals.

Granada is the fourth largest city in Nicaragua, with a population just over 191,000. It was founded by Cordoba in 1524, and is one of the first settlements constructed in the Americas. Despite being the most historic and one of the larger communities in the country, it continues to be distinctive because of its colonial architecture and ties to the western world. It is rapidly becoming the largest traveler destination in Nicaragua, which is helping the city grow and transform swiftly.
