Full description
Tour colonial Granada to discover the first city of the New World, founded by Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba in 1524, and now one of the greatest attractions in Nicaragua. This excursion will introduce you to all the most important monuments, as well as give you a flavor of the local life. Following a pick-up from your hotel, start with a stroll around the main streets of the historic center, learning how the city survived pirates, fire, and filibusters. Constructed by the Spanish as a model city, Granada gave the settlers a chance to showcase their glorious architecture, much of it now restored to its former glory. Admire stunning architecture, such as the Convento San Francisco, the oldest church in Central America. Climb the steps of the Fortaleza La Polvora for panoramic views of the Mombacho Volcano. Then, enjoy a horse carriage ride to some of the most scenic spots outside the city center.
