Granada - Hub of Nicaraguan Tourism

The metropolis contains historic architecture constructed all through the Spanish settlement and is still captivating to see. The city has maintained its old world character through the centuries. In spite of everything, it feels similar to a step back through history and with residents sitting outside on their porches, the traditional European- inspired buildings and horse-drawn carriages walking about.
