The most beautiful town on our trip! At the shores of the Lake Nicaragua
the town welcomes the visitors with streets of houses in colonial style
and a charming flair.
We spent much time here strolling through the town and the markets or
just watching the hustle and bustle at the shady Plaza Central.
For trips to the surroundings it's obvious to use the typical means of
transportation - the horse-drawn carriage.
In this way we reached the fortress La Pólvora, which is used
as a weapon museum today. After we woke up the guard with a start, we
had to hear that all the weapons were at the restoration right now. Well,
there was a nice view at the town from the watchtower after all.
And of course, we insisted on visiting the "home volcano" of Granada
- the Mombacho. We went by extra adapted lorries at a very steep
road - past coffee and banana plantations - up to the top of the extinct
volcano. From there you have a fantastic view at the town and the Isletas
in the Lake Nicaragua.
Visiting the old cemetery of Granada was worthwhile as well. The first
president of Nicaragua, Fruto Chamorro, is buried there for example.
