Arrival in Granada

The two most beautiful and also the two most visited cities in Nicaragua, León and Granada do have an namesake in Spain. Granada, founded in 1524, got its name in honour of the defeat of the last Moorish stronghold on the Iberian peninsula.
In Central America it became the sister capital of Antigua, Guatemala.

Granada, located on Lake Nicaragua is also very close to the capital and the international airport. This is the place that receives the most foreign tourists throughout the country. It’s a particularly beautiful city where it’s pleasant to stay. Yet I personally have a small preference for León where tourism did not yet show any excesses. In Granada, you could see that some were a bit spoiled. Yet this was nothing compared to many other places in the world. Moreover, you can take countless beautiful pictures.

I don’t know if it was wise to keep a tourist place until the end of my trip. Maybe I had visited this city better in the beginning. But I definitely wanted to be in León during the Semana Santa and that was in the beginning of my journey.
Maybe I'm a little overly negative about Granada. I definitely recommend this city for a visit once the political situation improves in the country.
