The Cathedral in Nicaragua is a historic and religious landmark in Granada, Nicaragua. The largest cathedral in Central America, it is an imposing yellow structure occupying the south-eastern side of another famous landmark, the Parque Central. Two of its bell towers face the park.
An older church existed in the same location in the 16th century but this was destroyed in 1856. The current version of the Cathedral was finished in 1915.
The Cathedral is known for its relatively austere interiors, as well as expansive ceilings and halls that lend the space an air of tranquility and calm. The main altar holds a statue of the Virgin Mary in a backdrop of blue mosaic tiles. Guests can pay $1 to climb up one of the bell towers to enjoy one of the best views of the entire city.Places nearby:
