Church · Tourist Spot
Pay a visit to Iglesia de La Merced, a historic site of Catholic pilgrimage. Originally built in 1539, the church was razed by pirates in the mid 17th century and rebuilt with its current Baroque facade in the 1780s. Restored with an ornate interior in the 1860s, the church today contains an image of the Virgen de Fatima, a sacred object that draws many pilgrims. Climb up the bell tower that flanks the church to gain extensive views of the city and beyond, including many major urban and natural attractions.

  • An "all day" in Granada (for about 6 hours to be exact), the "most memorable" part of my visit to the town really was the visit to this church and which specifically was not for the church itself but....  more »
  • A simple church with beautiful carvings and altar. There was no one inside so you had time to sit and meditate quietly. Appreciate it for its Nicaraguan location.  more »
