Granada, Nicaragua: colorful houses

GRANADA, NICARAGUA

A festival of colors

A travel guide to Nicaragua’s colonial beauty

G-R-A-N-A-D-A, we almost want to color every letter when we think about this stunning colonial city. As always we arrived in the dark and only got a glimpse of the town after sunset. While we were looking for our Airbnb, we passed grand churches and Calle la Calzada, a street lined with cafes, restaurants, and shops, buzzing with locals and tourists alike.

Cosmopolitan vibes

Granada was founded in 1524 by the Spanish. Due to its strategic location, the city quickly gained popularity and attracted explorers from all over the world. Granada is by far on one of the most cosmopolitan and elegant colonial cities we have visited in Nicaragua.

The vibrant, elegant, and lively city was screaming to be explored. We weren’t able to resist Granda’s charm and ventured out for a little walk after we arrived. Granada, one of the oldest cities in the Americas, is frolicking with colorful buildings and delightful alleys. Surrounded by lakes and volcanos, the lively city offers plenty of things to do.
