Best Hotels in Granada.
When we hear the name Granada, the first thing that comes to mind is the Alhambra of Granada in Spain. But there are other cities, with the same name and charms of a different kind. The duplicity of the names between Spain and Central and South America is the most common, so we have to specify from time to time what we are talking about. The Granada of Nicaragua is a city in the east of the country, next to Lake Nicaragua, and very close to Laguna de Apoyo. It is known precisely for its lake, but also for its culture and architecture.
Culture and nature in one place
Nicaragua is one of the destinations we can go to in Central America. It is a country full of contrasts, which is why many people do not decide to travel to this place at all. But if we give it a chance, we’ll probably realise that it’s one of the best decisions we’ve ever made on vacation. And even more so if we go to Granada, a place where culture and nature come together, which makes this place perfect for couples who love natural elements and outdoor excursions, such as learning and acquiring knowledge of a different culture.
So if we go to Granada, we can see, first of all, Lake Granada. It’s a most wonderful water formation. All lakes may seem the same to us, but this one has a particular charm. It is ideal to rest in nature, after all the hustle and bustle of a day of tourism. In addition, if you wish, you can also take a stroll along the same lake, either by boat or boat. If you want to encourage yourself to fish, you should first ask at a tourist office if you need a permit, but it is not normally restricted. You’ll find everything from trout to freshwater sharks. And if it is possible and you have time, do not hesitate to visit that great island in the middle of the lake, the so-called Ometepe Island.
If you want to do something different, you can visit the Cathedral of Granada, with a rather peculiar style, because its mustard color stands out from all the other buildings. With a large dome and two towers, if you are a lover of architecture you can not miss the opportunity to visit something like this, built in the mid-nineteenth century with a neoclassical style. If you are in the area, you can also visit its streets, as picturesque as it is charming. You’ll really like it. Don’t forget to stop by Independence Square to see the Obelisk, which is a great monument dedicated to those heroes of independence.
