Visit one of the city's landmarks at Catedral de Granada, a neoclassical church that dominates the urban skyline. The 1972 edifice features a striking red and yellow facade, along with two domed towers and bell tower. Walking through the church's five altars, and look for the sacred image of the Virgen de la Concepción, saved from destruction by fire in 1856. Also, pay attention to the main altar's statue of Mary surrounded by silver, and backed by blue mosaic tiles. Climb the bell tower to enjoy views of the city, the lake, and the volcano in the distance.

  • The eye-catcher on the large and lively square is this Catedral de Granada. Photogenic as in the evening the sun sets and the catedral an even more beautiful color. I had inside me more for. From outside so more beautiful than the inside.

  • Easily you can go up and give you a nice view from the balcony of the cathedral to the whole central plaza
  • I just love to come to the cathedral's bell tower... You get a different perspective and views of Granada.. A must visit
  • For $1, you literally have no excuse not to visit the top of the cathedral. The views are excellent and you'll end up getting some great overall pics of the city. The cathedral itself is beautiful so I strongly recommend visiting!
  • I've visited lots of churches in Masaya. Also in Catarina, León and Estelí. There is no church like this.
  • Amazing and iconic colonial Cathedral
