  • 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 »
  • Super cool old church and bell tower The church is free to enter but it costs one US dollar to climb the bell tower. Awesome city views  more »
