19) MUST SEE
🇳🇮 GRANADA, NICARAGUA

 

Granada Must See Panama Posse Rally

🇳🇮
 Granada is a stunning city on the shores of Lake Nicaragua and
historically one of Nicaragua’s most important cities, economically and
politically.

Granada had a thriving Indigenous population, but in 1524 Francisco Córdoba a Spanish conquistador the city was renamed Granada and registered  as  a  city in official records of the Crown of Aragon, and the Kingdom of Castile in Spain.

 The
city assembles under its urban built-up area and surroundings a series
of valuable buildings and properties representative of the history and
evolution of American art of the XVI to the XIX centuries.  

 

Courtyards

Located
at the North-western edge of the Nicaragua Lake, surrounded by an
exceptional natural environment consisting of isles, archipelagos,
woodlands, volcanoes, lakes and lagoons that have exercised an important
influence on its historic evolution and converted this site in one of
the most extraordinary natural-cultural scenic backdrops in the world.
